    I'm new here, and love this place. The only thing that I'd like to see added is a QRP section in the forums. In the CW area this topic has come up.... and I think it might be a good idea. What do you guys think?

    I was just looking for a QRP section to ask questions in.

    It would be good to find threads in one place.

    Hello David,
    I have sent a message to an administrator about your question.

    At least in theory, many of the forums could have a QRP subsection. Certainly many "Homebrew and Kit Projects" are QRP. Some QRP operators enjoy "Straight Keys - CW Enthusiasts" topics. Much "On the Road" operating is QRP. QRP operators use antennas. Many of the "Other Modes" are often used at QRP levels.

    It's already the case that if you have a question about QRP kit projects for portable CW operating, it's hard to know whether your query belongs in the "Homebrew and Kit projects" forum, or the "Straight Keys - CW Enthusiasts" forum, or the "On the Road" forum. I don't believe that adding yet another choice will improve this situation. I think it very well could make it harder, not easier, to find topics of interest.

    Actually I have just answered my own questions about what I want to do regarding QRP.

    That's just it.

    The Search isn't turning these things up.

    Only mention QRP and 10 pages Search result of "not really" QRP interest.

    AG6QR- I do see where there are topics of interest to QRP scattered within the other topics.... but that is the problem: they are scattered about. Just like the 'On the Road' section for mobile operators, it would be nice for us QRPers to have a place for low-power specific discussion.

    Yes, like off the road, even backpacking as even though I am not backpacking.
    The portability of the radio, antenna, power supply, etc does relate to either of those.
    Meaning my transportation is not 4 wheels.
    That could apply to backpacking, kayaking, motorcycles.

    To me the QRP forum should relate to anything QRP.
    transceiver, antenna, power supply....
    If for QRP it would go in there.
    A lot of those items are so interrelated that to me it makes sense to combine them.

    This I don't consider mobile.
    I would not use the radio when riding.
