How to call specifically QRP CLUB members on HF?
« on: January 11, 2014, 12:54:53 UTC »
OK, let's say I want to call & QSO fellow QRP Club members....

If I want to QSO fellow GQRP club members I can call CQ CQ CQ GQRP DE G0BVZ  K and so on.  If a GQRP club member can read my QLF CW, then we can QSO...

If I want to QSO fellow QRP Club members do I call CQ CQ CQ QRPC DE G0BVZ  K   ?

I've not found mention of a 'standard club CQ call' but maybe there should be one for this situation. QRPC may already be used by another club: I just used it as an example.  A directed call is useful to those without internet access and to purists who enjoy the challenge and rewards of traditional pre-internet hf operating. What do you think? Is this an idea worth following up? Can you dream up a good club CQ call? I  think short & snappy is good! As an incidental  benefit, CQ CQ CQ CLUB_ID DE G0BVZ type calls may raise awareness of this club, which is A Good Thing.

In the moment I'm in UK. Here some say (very loudly) it is not allowed to call ...DE G0BVZ/QRP so to be safe I guess callsign/club ID is not advisable for UK club members.

Congratulations on your success when using the club CQ call 12th Jan., Cap'n.  I'm really pleased it worked for you.  Who knows? It might even work for me!!  Oo-arrrr, arrrr....

I have to go below decks now to inspect the rum barrel for leaks....   ;D
