QRP operation is considered using power levels of 5 watts or less CW and 10 watts or less SSB.

I like weak signals

Do more with less...QRP

Pre Field Day post

The weather is forecast to be very nice this weekend. Temps at 80 on Saturday, mid 70's on Sunday.
Both days call for mostly sunny skys which will be great for our solar panels !

N8Q , our call will be on or around the QRP frequencies while on SSB and CW. It seems as if JT65 has been the most popular digital mode these days. We intend to make use of this low power friendly digital mode. Please be looking for our signal on the waterfall !

Hamfest Saturday

The Milford Hamfest was nice.
We saw old friends, and made a few new ones.
The old Ten Tec C22 found a new home, and I
picked up another vibroplex bug for the collection.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and hanging out
under the canopy shade.

Now lets get ready for field day 2017......
JT 65 is a new mode we will get to learn about
