Past QRP-ARCI President, QRP Hall of Fame 2010

QRP-ARCI learned today that Jim Stafford W4QO has become a silent key.  Jim Stafford is a past President of the QRP-ARCI, and is a member of the QRP-ARCI QRP Hall of Fame since 2010.  Jim never missed a FDIM event, so many of you have met and and talked with Jim over the years.  Jim was also named Ham of the Year at the 2010 Dayton Hamvention. One of Jim's proudest achievements was working 100 countries each, on 5 bands, running QRP. Jim is Peanut #1 and one of the founding members of the Northern Georgia QRP Club (NOGA), and in 2014 Jim worked with Mill Springs Academy Radio Club WA4MSA and taught an electronics class where they all built NM0S/Dave's simple crystal radio. They ALL WORKED! Jim was licensed over 60 years, starting out on the family farm in Shelbyville Indiana, Jim went on to Purdue University and earned a graduate EE degree, ending up as a Sr. Manager for Bell South and retiring in 1994.  The QRP community has lost a great advocate and friend.

QRP Amateur Radio Club International


QRP ARCI is a club for low power enthusiasts worldwide.

We produce a professional quality magazine (QRP Quarterly), organize an annual conference at Dayton ('Four Days In May' or FDIM), and sponsor various QRP contests and awards.

Our aim is to promote QRP and a variety of related activites. Many of our members enjoy home construction, kit building, antenna experimentation, backpacking and portable operation. Minimalist radios built in small tins are very popular but we also enjoy the very latest high performance radios such as the Elecraft KX3, the new SDR rigs, and great kits like the QCX from QRP Labs, kits from 4 States QRP Group, and the uBitx rigs. 

Let us know if we can promote your club, group, kit or product.
