Default [W2LJ] Just renewed

W2LJ QRP - When you care to send the very least!

Just renewed

Posted: 27 Mar 2019 05:58 AM PDT l

I sent in my $25.00 renewal to QRP-ARCI this morning. And I got to thinking
how QRP has changed over the years.

When I originally joined back in the late 70s - the stated goal of the
organization was to keep output power under 100 Watts, in order to mitigate
QRM and needless interference. 100 Watts! Wow! We've come a long way from
100 Watts. It makes me wonder what the original founders would have said if
someone had asked, "Hey ....... why not make that 5 Watts?" I can only
imagine that stares that question would have received, at the time.

In a time when a lot of organizations seem to be raising their dues,
QRP-ARCI has been pretty consistent. $25.00 is not a bad price to pay
for "QRP Quarterly", the organization's magazine. It's full of tips and
technical stuff - I'm always learning something new. There's also
more "human interest" non-technical articles in there, from time to time,
that just extol the fun of running QRP.

And even though I have never been, QRP ARCI does a bang up job of
running "Four Days in May" every year at Hamvention. I would dearly like
to make it there one of these years in order to meet, face to face, the
many QRP friends that I have made over the years. That would be grand, and
is definitely on my "bucket list".
