    The QRZ Biographical search is probably a little used feature but it contains much valuable information.
    You can search for various Key words listed in the QRZ data base.
    Go to QRZ.COM and click on 'call sign' then move down to 'In Biography" and click.
    Then enter your desired search word.
    (You have to select 'In Biography' before each search).
    Here is a tally of recent Key Words (Jan. 2019) as posted by hams in their QRZ.com Biographical Page.

    QRP: The first listing of matches shows 990, but when the count is really big the
    total is to the right of the search word:
    QRP - 15,300 total matches were found .
    PSK - 6583 total matches were found
    PSK 31 - 2083 total matches were found
    PSK-31 - 6657 total matches were found
    JT9 - 1678 total matches were found
    FT8 - 6241 total matches were found
    WSQ - zero matches, (No body reporting their WSQ activity yet. Check again next year).

    SOTA - 3091 total matches were found
    Jesus - 783 matches
    Pedestrian Mobile - 170 , (This shows a list of 170 guys who might be operating Pedestrian mobile. My name is in there).
    Astronomy - 1707 total matches were found
    Observatory - 398 total matches were found , Find your local observatory.
    480 kHz - 41 matches
    630 Meters - 121 Matches
    'W0RW' (when looked up as a biographical item) - 6 Matches
    Experimental - 398 total matches were found
    You can look up your favorite subject.
    I like to do this every few years to see the changes.
    SOTA went from 2,416 in 2017 up to 3,091 in 2019.

    The count might include revisions, If some one revises his QRZ page
    those repeated words might be added to the previous count.

    Not sure, whether it's used that rarely.
    I search regularly for my favourite keywords e.g. milliwatting, QRPp, minimalist... - works fine,
    always great to see, what others have done before and, often even more important, how they actually did it.
    I really appreciate this feature!

    TNX guys for sharing. I've never noticed that feature before.
    I'm into the BITX and uBitx tranceivers.
    Entered those in for a search and found a couple of good tips.
    TNX for sharing and 73.

    Well that feature is a great tool to find other hams that use modes you are using ! like Satellite WOW ! 4982 seem to or want to work satellites world wide. Now if I can narrow that down a little bit just to what I can work in the foot print of a given satellite ! Thanks to W0RW for that info. 73 Phil KI6PMD ..

    I just tried, thought I followed instructions above, but keep getting msgs like the following, no matter what search term I use. What's the secret incantation I need to know?

    No result data was available for: TS590

    If you add more info .. it would refine your search.. as a side note.. if you add "" around a word it will make sure it is in the top searches..(and or phrase)
