    Episode 93:
    QRP
    (Turns out that life is long enough)


    Everything you've always wanted to know about QRP... wouldn't fit in this program. But we do talk about it a lot with Rex Harper W1REX (Tuna Tin Kits), Glen Popiel KW5GP (not the Pocket Fisherman guy), and Craig Behrens NM4T (The Huntsville Guy). From the Huntsville Hamfest.

    <small>KICKSTARTER reminder: As we post this episode, just a few days to go on our </small><small>KICKSTARTER</small><small> to fund producing video of the 2013 ARRL and TAPR DCC (Sept 20-22). We're getting close! If you're interested in the high-tech digital stuff, check the link to Episode 90, look at our previous DCC videos linked there, and consider making a pledge at any level. If you're watching after Labor Day (Sept 2, 2013), go see if we were successful.</small>

    Nice!--I am an avid QRP guy. For those of you who think life is too short for QRP, my recommendation is to use your cellphone.

    I've always thought thus. Although I have at times resorted to QRO...such as 1GW when I did an experiment or two at HAARP. :)

    I'm still watching it and am about 3/4 of the way through. I've been catching it in 15 minute bites. So far it's pretty good.

    Amen!! Had a real nice QSO with a OR ham who was running QRP...he was 599 solid into San Diego. Then I stuck around to hear him work stations in IN and 4-land. (I couldn't even hear the 4-station!). He's going for WAS QRP, and I have no doubt he'll make it. Vy 73...Joe

    I was originally licensed in 1981 (KA5LMR) and did it all in ham radio for 20 years. Then I got a bit burned out and laid the whole shebang down. Then, in and around 2000, I discovered QRP. Man, it was a jolt to my system. All of my original enthusiasm was rekindled. Now QRP is all I run, even on SSB. I have fewer contacts, but they mean a lot more. This was a great show on the subject, keep'em comin'!
