    An Introduction to QRP

    Steve Hartley G0FUW brings us an introduction to QRP radio. This is a fascinating aspect of the hobby where low power (and often low cost) equipment can be used effectively to propel your signal to distant shores. Steve will explain what it’s all about, and give you an idea of what to expect when you turn the wick down on your power.

    Steve is Chairman of the GQRP Club, a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers to promote Low Power Radio which publishes the highly acclaimed Sprat magazine every quarter. Membership of the GQRP club is very low powered too, at £6.
