Discover the joy of low power amateur radio, what it entails and how you can join in on the fun.
About the Book
This is a very interesting guide to the QRP world. While most HAM operators are quite at home with base rigs with over 50 watts input to the final stages, and working DX using hundreds of watts, or even a kilowatt, there are some who can finesse low power contacts using five watts or less. This guide generally points the reader in the right direction to equip himself with high quality QRP gear, and offers some rudimentary instruction in its use. When the balloon goes up, whether due to natural disaster, man-made havoc, or even a Zombie Apocalypse, QRP-hip HAMs will be on the front lines of communication where lightweight, versatile gear is a must.
