I'm a new member and enjoy QRP. I got back on the air less than 2 years ago. I've decided

to work on W.A.S. and DXCC using only 1 watt of power. I just started this challenge about a

month ago and so far have 20 states and 10 countries confirmed QRP 1 watt. I just added 

Hungary to my DXCC list last night on 40 meters.

I also enjoy CW contests at QRP 5 watts. I just started back contesting this year. I need antennas

for 160 and 80 meters and decided to build a trap antenna designed by Al Buxton, W8NX. One

NEScaf works great

My NEScaf went together just fine, thanks to the great manual.  My FT 817ND does not have a CW filter, so its a great accessory.  I had made a tilt stand for the 817 using a CD case, so I put the NEScaf board inside that case, drilled holes in the front of the stand and mounted the switch, both pots, and the audio out jack.  Power and audio in come out the rear of the case.  Not exactly "show quality" but it looks OK, saves another box on the desk, and puts the controls just below the rig controls.

Results from QRP Afield 2011

N4BP reclaimed the top spot this year! Thanks to all competitors.


Thanks for allowing me the honer of joining the N.E.Q.R.P. Club. As you can probably tell I`m a transplant from the north east (RI). Do 99% QRP. My antenna isn`t that great but I have worked into the north east, WG1L in ME. and K1YAN in MA. Working on a better ant. but not much room to put one up. I use an INV-V right now only up 20 ft. Hope to hear more from the N.E. this winter.

New Member.....

I'm a 58 yo guy... who discovered Ham back in the early 80's... Globe Scout transmitter and a Hallicrafters SX-99, all CW, from the 50's....

Then dropped out after a couple of years.... until the early 90's... QRP... built a Norcal 40A... had fun with that...

Now looking to get back involved.  Got the Norcal still... will use that on 40 for the time being... want to build an Elecraft2....  but open to suggestions...
