QRP ARCI member Don Bush WA2TPU had a 3-way QSO with ZS1RJQ and ZS1PZ.
The QSO was recorded and should be an inspiration to everyone to try SSB at QRP power levels
Listen as the 3 stations drop their power levels to 1 Watt
Getting heard by QRPers
Next time you call CQ and get no reply, try announcing your presence on the QRP Spots website.
Tell other QRPers that you are on the air and looking for contacts. Of course you can use the QRP Spots website from the shack, but there are other options for /P portable stations and backpackers. Post your message via Twitter or, to keep things entirely ham related send an APRS message from a compatible handheld.
Let us know if we can feature your QRP club, group or event !
QRP operation for QRP ARCI purposes is defined as operation with a transmitter power output equal to or less than 10 W PEP output for single-sideband or double-sideband phone (suppressed or full-carrier) and equal to or less than 5 W PEP output for other modes (e.g. CW, FM, AM, digital).
QRP ARCI awards and contests are based on these output levels.
