QRP Club Night

Club Night Button

Friday 19 May 2017
8.00pm - 10.00pm

QRP Club Night is free of charge !

A night of fun, games and socialising. We tried this the last three years and it was a great success.

QRP Clubs and groups will have a table to promote themselves. Tables can be decorated with flags and banners. Flyers and badges can be distributed - and new members recruited.

Each Club can make their table 'their own' but we suggest that some snacks/nibbles/sweets from their area are provided and some kind of game or competition is hosted (think along the lines of toroid winding and left footed CW).

Please - find out who is the lead person for this from your own club. If no one is doing it, then take the lead yourself and contact your fellow club/group members !

Clubs at FDIM 2016 -

  • Austin TX QRP Club
  • Four State QRP Group (4SQRP)
  • Lafayette QRP Group
  • MSUARC
  • NAQCC
