Back issues of 72 now available

Thanks to Dave Siegrist, NT1U, and Bill Northup, N1QPR, the entire collection (18 issues) of 72, the NE QRP Club's newsletter, is now available online or by CD-ROM. Covering 1992 through 1997, this quarterly publication was filled with QRP projects, antenna information, QRP ideas, etc., much of which remains relevant to QRP today.

PDFs are available at the bottom of this page. We are gradually transcribing articles for easy web browsing; click on links below to read individual articles.
