So, deciding to jump in, I brushed up on my CW and am about to make the plunge with my brand new Exta Class ticket. How about you? Tried to contact anyone with less than 10 watts lately? Or maybe 5 watts? Or maybe 1 Watt? Or maybe 100 milliwatts? Yes, it IS possible and if your old hot water heater just doesn't give you the zing on the bands it used to, maybe, just maybe, QRP will bring back the fun for you as it has for me! Give it a try, and see if you find, as I have, that QRP in THRIVING!"
