Hello John. My first visit to your site - looks great. I am interested to know what your antenna set up is as I have the same problem as you. Got your name from Stan K4UK. will be in to visit you often. I am not qrp, but have a great deal of respect for those who are. I'd like to try it one day. Going to Florida and I might run into a problem with my big rig. So maybe you can suggests a qrp that will cut down the size of my shack !! - Peter K2MKX - Auburn, NY - Dec 17

John After visiting your site I see that your memory is better than mine when you recalled working each other in the past. I used to spend hours on 40 cw on the county hunter freq working the various /m and think I sent more than a few qsl cards through the service too. I only wish that they had the new small cheap all band rigs available back then that they do now, I may have been able to hand out some of the counties in my various travels. Nice chatting with you this A.M. on 30m and hope that we can do it again. 73 - Mark/WA8VNZ - Montrose, Mi - Dec 12

Hi John, thanks so much for all the info on your website! I just got my tech license and did my first QSO yesterday. I had thought that CW required big antennas and lots of power, but your site dispells a lot of those myths. Because of this I now plan to upgrade and start doing QRP and homebrew stuff (soulds like fun!) by next year after I get tired of FM. :-) Thanks again for all this wonderful info! - Vince KG6IZL - San Diego, CA - Dec 10

I am x-radioman (RM1-P2) from 1958-67. Had a speed key ticket. I still tap out "bens best bent wire" with kitchen knife on counter pretty good. I thought the code was gone for good so just had to get my 2 cents in. I always wanted to be a ham but never pursued it. Had all the qualifications ie.Radioman "b" school in Navy. Spent a year on Adak, Alaska taking weather msgs from mostly Jap fishing boats all over Pacific and relaying to Frisco and then when Combined Fax weather msg came back sent out to all the the fishing boats via 468/500 kcs. called out on 500 to tell to go to 468 for msgs. Little lengthy here but brings back memories. Have a good day and good Thanksgiving and xmas. - John Hazeltine - Elkhorn, Wis - Nov 20

Interesting site. I've been a long time cw'er - prefer it over ssb. A friend of mine KG4JOA suggested I check out your site. I was his Elmer and he now has passed his code, so he's really looking forward to doing HF. Once he's rigged up his antenna, you'll be hearing a lot from him, and from me, for that matter. Again, a real nice site and much appreciated to us QRP'ers. Tnx & CUL - Bill Elliott: N4VUF - Scottsville, Va - Jul 26

Hi John, Site looks great as usual. Just picked up a FT-817 and boy what a neat rig. The nice thing about it is that you can't go above 5 watts with it so it eliminates the temptation to increase the power. Lots of contacts on 5 and 2.5 watts (CW of course !!). Great little rig. If you get a chance, check this one out. Sorry to hear of your recent loss. Best wishes and prayers to you. 73 - Scott Huber - W3BUG - Bel Air, MD - Jun 19
John, I like your webpage and check it often. Still learning to built rigs and antennas. I guess I need to learn to walk before I can run. I work QRP with a Yaesu 817 and enjoy making many CW contacts. Only been on the bands a little over 15 months and can only go about 18 to 20 wpm. You are a great inspiration! Please keep up the good work. 73GTN NM - Bill KG4FXG - Lawrenceville, GA - Jun 19

I'm looking forward to meeting new Ham Radio Oporators. Sincerly, - Laila KD7NIX - Redmond, wa. - Jun 16
Hi John..This is a great site. I just got back to the hobby after being away for nearly 20 years. Used to hold WB6ZFQ back in the late 60-70's. School and career got in the way...Got back primarily because of the QRP "movement" within Ham radio these days. I have just compleyed my QRP (SSB) WAC! Topped off with a 5/3 sig. report from Namibia. I try to set a goal of at least one new state of (any) DX contact everyday I operate. So far I,ve had 24 days of at least 1 DX contact per day, and usually much more. rig is nothing more than a Yaesu FT 817 and an inverted V dipole at 30 feet. Thanks again for the great site. 73 - Harry Edwards W6DXO - Pleasanton, CA - Jun 14

15 and 20 meter CW are my favorite bands but 10 meters is great when it is open. My grandson found a mic in the shack not long ago. He asked, "Grampa what do you do with this." My reply, "I don't remember but I believe it had something to do with AM. Lots of QRP stuff here to include a new FT817. My long time friend Bill, N4ES, got one at the same time in Dayton this year.

Hi John, Really enjoy your websight. I have viewed it on many occasions over the past two years. Sorry to hear about your mom. The good news is that she is in good hands now, and she lives inside of you. I love cw also and was a CT in the Navy during the Viet Naum War. I am also a life member of the SOWP also. Hope to work you on qrp from the home qth. I haven't got set up on hf since I built my new home in Strasburg, Co. I lived in Aurora for the previous 23 years and had a 50' tower with an, explorer 14, 6 el beam, up 60 ft. I have covenences where I'm living now, so I feel that the good old days of a rohn tower and a good beam are history. I will settle for qrp, with some homebrew antennas, and have just as much fun. Don't give up on ham radio, John, we have to go on and enjoy the things which give us much enjoyment. I am from New England originally, in Connecticut up until 1967, when I got married and came to Colorado. I'll be looking for an e-mail from you, and will give you a challenge to hook up with Strasburg, Co. on qrp in the near future. Hang in there John, and keep the faith. I lost my Mom in 1986, and my Dad in 1995. He was orginally K1NOB, and in Fla. K4KNB. Have a great day, and I would like to get set up on hf agn soon and possibly work you on cw. Tnx agn for the very enjoyable websight, and don't lose your interest in ham radio. Tnx, WB0AWB - Edward R. Earley - Strasburg, Co - May 21

John, I just passed my Tech. test and am studing CW with much interest. I found your site to be very interesting and well designed, I suspect you have a professional software backround?? As do I. I am still awaiting my call sign to appear in the FCC database and looking forward to my first 'QSO'. I found your site very inspiring in terms of what could be acomplished with a minimal station setup, and also your CW section. I find myself mainly interested in CW, although I suspect I will use phone quite a bit to get on the air quickly. Hope to hear your call on the air sometime soon. Thanks for all the valuable info. Very sorry to hear about your Mom. Glenn - Glenn Graf ??1??? - Bedford, Ma - May 15
John Sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. I imagine Mother's day was a difficult time for you. I am sure you have many pleasant stories to share about Mom and I am sure she was thankful to have a caring son. It takes a great deal of courage and sacrifice to be a caregiver. However, after your time for grieving has pastI want to encourage you to enjoy your Qrp hobby more than ever. Life MUST go on. I want to encourage you to continue your efforts to promote QRP operation. -I know we have worked several times on Cw and I remember meeting you at the dayton hamvention at several QRP forums.

I have enjoyed coming to your page because it is so comprehensive and factual. Also, your goals are so worthy concerning amatuer radio that I am impressed. I have, over the years, have dabbled in amateur radio, having never gone the distance to get a license, but at this time I have chosen to try again. You might have taken notice to my email address. Probably a bit arrogrant, however it reflects my job. I am an Electronics Technician at IFR Americas, working in Customer Service reapiring spectrum analyzer. I am not unfamiliar with RF circuitry, so I do find QRP rather interesting. The learning of the code has always been a problem for me, but it's just a mindset that I am sure I'll get over soon enough. In the meantime, I'll continue studying the code and brush up on the theory a bit and tinker with the electronics, too. - Mark R. Elzinga - Wichita, KS - Mar 25

It's really great to read of your activity with QRP. I moved to Carlisle, PA from Indiana, PA (worked in Kittanning before moving). I live in town and haven't been on the air, but at Christmas time my wife bought me a small rig (DX70). I plan to get active on CW. I run the telecommunications for Dickinson College. Just finished the Cisco CCNA program. I have a GROL and my first call was KN3ZUU. I remember the good old days when W2OY was active on 75M. It would be great to meet you sometime. I get back to Indiana on weekends and still have a home there.

Pass the word that on Mar 31st the New England QRP Club will be visiting W1AW in Newington, CT and will hold their winter meeting at that time. Also, at 1 PM many members will be operating W1AW on all the QRP frequencies from 10, 15, and 20 meters, as well as 40 and 80. Please keep an ear out for W1AW/QRP at that time and receive a QSL from the league (only if you send one first).

A really outstanding site, John. I had access to an HW-8 for 2 months many years ago & enjoyed it a lot, but never got back to QRP. I've been handling NTS traffic for the past several years, but my old TS-520 finally gave out & can't be fixed (after 21 years of constant use). Am thinking perhaps of getting into QRP, for the Social Security check doesn't buy much "big equipment". Just happened to come across your Website & am certainly impressed. Good luck in the Contest! 73 N3COR - Don Neal - Russell, PA - Feb 23

Nice site, I am currently operating QRP in Wonju, South Korea will be back in TN Jul 2001. Use to Operate QRP up in Cumberland, MD. I currently use ARK-40 and ARK-4, WM-20, GM-20 and GM-15 by Small Wander labs all of wich I built myself and work flawlessly. It sadens me about all of the controversy over CW, I fear that the new Hams will never know what they are missing. 73's - Craig P. McVey AB8DY (HL9DY S. Korea) - Clarksville, TN - Jan 28

Just browsing and ran across your site. I dabble with CW on QRP especially when my brother and I are backpacking. We work 20M and 40M from the Appalachian Trail or wherever we happen to be hiking. This Spring it will be from the North Country Trail on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. - Charles Graf WA3THA - Arnold, MD - Jan 15
VERY nice site, OM. Just getting into QRP after being inactive 15yrs. Bug bit after working 2 Way QRP to Hawaii then QRP to Japan back to back. - Tom Owens WB5KHC - Irving, TX - Jan 14
Hello John No states on 12m but 12 dxcc 100w or less to dipole. Too chicken for qrp. * Old DXrs never die. They go qrp.** How many qrp stations can operate on the same frequency ? All that want to. Can't hear them any way.*** How many qrp stations does it take to make a qso from one state to another ? (sorry, still counting QSPs) **** Funny thing; my AF knob only works on .060. - Steve Lybarger - NU7T - Reno, NV - Jan 14
Love to work cw qrp and would like to get into a good club, gpt any sagestations?? Keep up the great work with your web site!! "73" - Dave Nightingale kf4hzh - jonesborough, TN - Jan 13
Hello, Just got my Tech Plus ticket in Dec 2000 - plan on going QRP for economics, but mainly because I've always loved CW, especially as a kid, boy was I mystified by CW! Now it's not really a big deal, just fun. Thanks for your site. 73s and good DX! KG4KXY - Chris Berndt - Richmond, VA - Jan 9
Been visiting your site for several months now And it convinced me to give QRP a try. I have never had so much fun. Only wish I had been doing this sooner. Thanks for hooking me up with this great mode. BTW, just finished the Elecraft K1 xceiver last month, now I work CW from any where I happen to be. - Carl- K1KID - Wareham, MA - Jan 6
