2009 Fall Meeting - Largest EVER

Fall 2009 Meeting – Huge success!

Members from all directions of the compass ascended upon the fall meeting of the New England QRP Club in Nashua, NH Saturday—November 21st. A variety of club topics were presented with deep details for coming events which were wholly explained and questions, answers and profound explanations were fielded by members with deep authority, assurance and articulation. It is without doubt, the members of the New England QRP club are thoroughly engaged in amateur radio and extremely professional in their work. The club has a powerhouse of knowledge with a backdrop of expertise second to none. It was with great pleasure that we met, mingled, and exchanged our thoughts to promote amateur radio as were know it and what amateur radio ought to be.

Hi all just a little link to my Blog and what I have been building and tinkering with.

Dennis was interviewed about neqrp and etc. in this podcast:

Ex Vermonter

I was lisenced in Mount Holly Vt in 1978 as KA1BWE and operated there until August 1087 whan I moved to Idaho. I have used many QRP rigs starting with the HW8 and now use the FT 818 with a MFJ 860 swr/pwr meter and aMFJ 902 tunner, with a modified Black and Decker car start battery and 2 solor pannels. straight key j-38 and all antennas are end fed or ham sticks. On base beam and inv v and ham sticks.

QRP AFIELD all green!

I managed to use my "newly" completed spud launcher to have a copper wire over a 100 foot tree, however, in the excitement aiming my "gun," I accidentally 'touched' the launch button and over 250 feet of trace string went everywhere...except up. What a mess! On the second try, I DID get a tracer line over a 100 foot tree and hauled #26 copper wire to new heights. The long wire, as well as a vertical R7, were part of the operations. You gotta love that spud launcher! (QST-March 2009)

My station was all GREEN with a 15 watt solar panel charging a large gel-cell and the IC-703, with long wire in the tree. A Schurr paddle, an MFJ tuner, a lot of lemonade were on hand, set and ready to go.

New Kid on the Blog

Hello All,

My name is James, AA5AO and my QTH is Abilene, Texas.

My current station consisit of a Heathkin HW-8, MFJ tuner, and a 1/2 square for 20 meters.

I am looking for the artwork for the NESCAF since the kits are not in production. If it can be supplied, I would greatly appreciate it.

While I am not on the radio, I am chasing after a couple of boys with ADHD, a Wife, a Mother-in-Law in the nursing home, and a Nursing Career.

Thanks for the read,
