New to QRP
« on: January 13, 2016, 00:11:06 UTC »
Hello all!

I just got started in amateur radio a little over a year ago, and have enjoyed it thoroughly!

My QTH is Rexburg, Idaho. There are lots of mountains in the area, and I'm hoping to get involved with SOTA this summer. A necessary first step is operating QRP.

Within the last few months I've managed to acquire an HB-1B, tuner, and EFHW. As soon as the weather cooperates, I'll get the wire in the air!
