About the New England QRP Club

The New England QRP Club is where... "The excitement is building...."

But we love to operate, too. And we enjoy eyeballs, as well.


John Griswold, KK1X, is the Membership Coordinator for the New England QRP Club. If you are interested in joining the club, please email John at kk1x AT with "NEQRP Membership" in the subject line.


The New England QRP Club annual meeting is held at ARRL headquarters or Boxboro in alternate years. We have an informal wintertime luncheon, lately in Nashua, New Hampshire. Many members congregate at Lobstercon in July.

That handsome and evocative NEQRP logo emerged from the hand of architect Jack Frake, W1IU (ex-NG1G), who drew it when he and two other guys (Jim Fitton, W1FMR, and John Collins, KN1H) were starting the club in the 1980s.


Hello my name is Tom and I recently rebuilt my Heathkit HW-99, 80-40-15 and 10m cw rig. I also added the SP-9(speaker)HFT-9(tuner)HM-9 meter.It is a realy nice looking station.

Now I need to make contacts.

Anyone up for a sched? 


Hi Tom,


I have an HW-9 with the same speaker, tuner, and meter you have. I could do a sked, I can usually hit New England from Eastern PA on 40 or 80. Evenings are good from about 8 to 10, minus Thursdays. Let me know what works for you!
