Ok! Good site! 73! Al Sidorsin - EW6AL

Hi ; What a great webpage for amateur radio . You have really moved me to get my cw speed up. Age is 57 and a ham for 10 years off and on. Retired now so more time for the hobbies. Also purchased a TS570D and I agree what a great rig. Have used a TS830 and TS850. Well done 73 - VE4TI

Hi K3WWP Nice reading about Your kind of operating with QRP. Have also been working QRP, with the INDEX QRP+ AND THE qrp++ S/N 1559. Have been in many contests, and really surprising working QRP. Most of it on my home made BUTTERNUT HF-6 vertical 10 ft above ground with 12 radials, but have worked DU and lot of DX on 40 meter. - Even on 80m I have worked the East coast of USA. - Now the rig is working with OX3FV Kim in Greenland, and he is also enjoying it. 73 from Denmark Joergen - OZ8AE

Hi John...great site. Noted from the example of your standard contest report that you mentioned using a 6Y6 final keyed with your CMOS II keyer. Was wondering if you are keying this directly or through a relay or some form of keying interface?? Steve - VE7SL

73!GD LUCK! de - 4L4KW

I used a search engine to find your site using TS-570D as the parameters. You seem to have done quite well with QRP and I'm wondering if you earned your WAS (I saw the wall paper in one of your pics) entirely as QRP. 73, Scott - VE7JKE

# Hi: Your site makes the 'voluntary simplicity' aspect of QRP really well with its' stress on 'just get out and do it!' even if the antenna isn't optimal - VE7DSN

Fantastic ! CW forever ! 73 de Jean-Marc - F5SGI

Hello John. Just having a look around via PA3BWK's site and checking out a few interesting things. Will come and visit again, thanks and 73, Bob - G4KEW

Good luck with te QRP QSO's John. I use also QRP RIG's build by my own. And I love it to make QSO'swith that RIG's. Hope to meet you on the band. I'm QRV on all HF bands except 160m. 73, Jacques - PA3EVZ

First time I have come across this interesting site. came via MEGS -Scottish QRP site. I run a Kenwood TS120V and TenTec 1320, all QRP CW here. 72/73 Iain G-QRP Club Nr 1278 - ZL2BJC


HI JOHN ! Best 73 to PA/USA ! I just picked up a "web-qso" after searching info via Altavista on QRP. I am really interested on QRP-constructions, and really value guys with endless PWR to effort with those SMALL POWERS. Actually I am planning to try soon with LEMON-POWERED (=fruit!) TX with some mWatts. The main box I prefer to use for QRP is actually a film container with Cu/PE-laminate glued inside to make grounding. Think about a shot-gun belt with this type of TX's for every band! *** best 73 from Jorma - OH2PV

# Hi John, I closed my station down last May, for personal and RFI reasons and it will not be possible to get back on the air in the foreseeable future, but oh do I miss the gang and especially the sweet sound of morse. I have the G4ZFE/RUFZ pileup program on one of my PC's but listening just makes me sad. So I visit as many hamsites as I can when I am using the web at the local College or public library, hope to be online at home soon now that we have some cheap deals in the UK. Great site John and I want to wish you and anyone else reading this good luck and lots of dx and to say CODE IS BEST AND QRP IS FUN. 73/88 from Angie FISTS 041, G-QRP 426l, HSC 1496, UQRQC/SMHSC/HACWG and of course RSGB. - G0HGA

# ANOTHER "FLEA POWER" BEACON IDENTIFIER FOR THE Y2KBALLOON 28.075 mhz cw. THIS MAKES THREE ! CK www.caribooweb.com/y2kballoon "73" Ric,,,, - VE7CUP

Very nice your site. Congratulations dr om /...-.- - PY2GQT

Update for the y2kballoon from Quesnel B.C. Wx still not looking good, but the extra time has enabled us to add another beacon. As well as the 3.579 mhz. c.w. beacon identifier, we have added a 6 mtr "flea power" 20 mw beacon, with the same identifier message as the 80 mtr beacon, again with a 1/2 wave vert. dipole. As well, we are adding an optically split screen on the ATV cam. The bottom 1/8 of the screen will show the 12 oclock horizon, this will be articulated to the best position sometime after launch, and stabilization of payload. If we can find a crystal, we will also add a 10 meter beacon. "73" from Quesnel, www.caribooweb.com/y2kballoon - VE7CUP

Nice web site, will build one someday. Best 73 and happy Y2K de Ben - XE2AUB

Hello, I am enthusiast about CW, and very intersted in QRP. Yesterday, I got a QRP transceiver, SST40 from California. I am very looking forward to QSO with QRPer in U.S. using SST40.(Is that impossible?) I think that the kits building is very popular in U.S., because I could find out so many Kits supplier's home pages on the WEB. Your home page is very useful to select the kits supplier. I hope to make a contact with you on 2way QRP QSO(hi)! - JJ6TWQ

I could not say anything much but... very nice website 73's & Mabuhay!!! - DU1TJM

Interesting and very useful ! - YO3APJ

Hi, John Tnx for this tremendous oportunity to have at the same place almost most of information we need to build or to buy our equipment for QRP. I'm a QRPist, and I have assembled some transmitters for 40 and 15 meters, but they don't work very well, cause I'm not so experience in mounted them, so I try to do all my best. I was passing by around here and for my surprise, I got your site. For the first time I didn't see so many companies that make this kind of products, I only knew Dan's small parts. So, John I don't have the right words to say THANK YOU FOR MYSELF and for my friends, too. By the way, I liked a lot, too, your QRP Ham station. Congratulations and I hope you go on like this, cause we need people like you. Thanks a lot. Sincerely yours, Jorge. 73 - PU7RJC

Hello John, Always pleased to be able to say hello to Hams on the Web because I have not been active on the radio since May and boy do I miss it, especially CW. Won't go into my very personal reasons here but hope to get back on the air soon. Am a member of FISTS, G-QRP, HSC, SM-HSC, UQRQC etc. and only use SSB about once year when someone asks me. I find that computing and the Internet are now competing with the radio for my time and interest and by the way I am over 50. My husband is not a ham but does have his own PC. I use the computers at the local college where I am enrolled on a computer technician evening class. I dare n ot go online at home because I know I will run up a heck of a phone bill! Anyway, did want to say that I found your site just now, have of course bookmarked it(the college LAN does handle cookies) and from what I have seen it is great - if there is not one already please do link to FISTS won't you or better still join us. All the best with the website John and good dx. 73/88 to you and all your other guests from Angie - G0HGA

Surfed on in from MEGS. Was looking for Q and Precedural Codes for CW, and found a lot of what I was after on your site. Couldn't wait to buy a book, see. Many thanks for service you have provided. Richard. - G8VOQ

Great site John! I was just looking for a contest calendar and found it on your page. I am hoping to be on the CQ WW CW test at the end of the month. Maybe we'll meet? Regards Barry - ZS1NF

A REAL NICE INTERESTING SITE. You have whetted my appetite for QRP working, having been a ham for over 50 yeatrs on QRO (100 watts). I loved the pics of ur shack and the homebrew gear, it brot back memories of my early days in ham radio when money was scarce and the only way to get on the air was to build the stuff.. I see u had over 40k visits to ur site. That represents a lot of email hi. Here's another one from an appreciative ham who thanks you for your time and effort in furthering ham radio. Good Luck and hope to work u on the air. My favourite band is 18 Mhz. - VE6AUV

And I was here, and drinked honey ... and liked :-) - UT1YV

Hello John, I came to your site because I am member of the QRP.L reflector and Alan, KB7MBI had a message there and said that your site was interesting. Yes, it is interesting. I am 66 and retired. I am a TenTec freak and work abt 90 % CW with TenTec Delta II. Sometimes also QRP either with the Delta or with SG-2020. I also have a QRP FT-747 SX. Also active with PSK31 which is a most amazing mode. Special made for QRP? Hope to work you someday on 21 which seems to be the best band for W at present time. Antenna is only an R-5 vertical so please listen very careful after me, hi. 73 de Lars / Proud owner of CMOS Super Keyer III and Mercury paddle #287. - SM3AVQ

I found the URL in the QRP-L list! (G3YCC) I am hoping to buld an NC20 later on this year. It sounds great! We don't have so many Amateurs over here that are as interested in QRP as you appear to do, and I find it interesting to read all the enthusiastic messages on QRP-L. This keeps me interested. 72/73, Colin (Barry, South Wales) - GW3WSU

I haven't really looked at your page yet, but it looks interesting! vy 73 - OZ7AHR

I enjoy the emphasis on simplicity and low cost hamming. Great content on your site for CW enthusiasts! - ZL1FAB

Dr. John, fb site - I like qrp-ing also, using my home-made 5W tranceiver for 80&20m. Ant=3el.Fritzel FB33, K1EL's K9- keyer, Bencher paddle. Wrkd 2 YV5 stations yesterday with 559 rpts. Adrenalin rises at those moments! Would like to build the Norcal NC20, but it's expensive getting it over here. Maybe I'll build my own 'ugly methode' version. '73 cu on HF. Carel - PA0CMU

I use the non-frames version for the reason of personal dissatisfaction with frames, as well as some undocumented features. My favorite mode of operation is CW. I found your site with the search string of "cw and radio and ham and amateur". I used the search engine at http://www.dogpile.com - V73GT

I have been into amateur radio since I was 20 yrs old, now I'm 34. But I got my HF rigs 5 yrs ago with just some dipoles as antenna. Now, I'm putting up a beam, tri-bander, so I keep on learning DXing. This page is very informative. Thank you so much for sharing. 73, de Thelma - DU1IVT

Hello John, Nice to make a QSO with you and to receive your E-mail. I prefer to make QSO's in QRP an d in the mode CW. I member of Benelux QRP club BQC, and G-QRP club. I make my own QRP rig's, mostly 4 sigle band use. During my stay in Bosnia Herzegovina (T9/PA1AT) I made in half a year over 1600 QSO's on 10 Mhz with a home brew 1 Watt TX with DC-RX and ant was inv Vee up 4 mtrs. So everything is possible with QRP. I always say to the big gunns: "It's not only power that you need". And "without CW its just CB". '72 Gerard - PA1AT

# Great looking site.Be back again soon I am sure. Was told about the Site on the GQRP reflector. Operate from a Apartment with a 66 foot long wire half outside and half inside.Mostly 20 mtrs. Will check 15 meters for few days. 73 de Harvey - VE1HDW

Interesting site, stumbled across your site by following a link in a newsgroup when looking for a piece of equipment for my sister-in-law in Adelaide SA, Australia.

Hello from Romania - YO8CWK

Been a ham for 41 years. WN3MIQ/W3MIQ 1958, in western Pennsylvania. Age 65 and retired. Designed large DC power supplies up to 1 megawatt. Largest one "consulted" on was 130 VDC at 250,000 DC amperes--production of chlorine from sea water. Rig is a ICOM 756. ant Cushcraft AP8 vertical. All CW. FIST 3025/CC 171 Heard about your web page from your E-mail after our 40 meter QSO. Best of luck on getting 2000 QRP contacts. 73 Bill - VE3MIQ

Dear John, it was a pleasure to visit your page. I am a licensed ham for two months with a few qso's on CW, but this mode (despite all difficulties) seems very attractive to me. I find your advices on CW procedures usefull. I feel strongly encouraged by your attitude to continue on CW. If it is what FISTS represent generally I will join the club in the future. With best wishes from Poland. Gabe - SP9ELM


Excellent site and will visit again - MM0BCR

Great Site! Especially like the daily propogation reports and analysis. Just getting back into DX after a 9 year absence (Cycle 23 helps!) Keep up the good work!! 73! - VE3RFA

Very interesting site. Congratulations! I think QRP is the only way one can evaluate a good antenna and equipment. The emotion of doing a DX with a "milliwatt" must be anything special !! John, I'd like to know if you have experience with SSB-QRP or AM-QRP. I'd be very glad if you send me some information or an address where I can find anything about. 73s and good luck ! - PU5MPL

Ciao Jhon excellent web site, congratulations! 73 - IZ0AEX

Muy buena toda la informacion que se puede tener en esta WEB. Me gustaria saber si hay algunas frecuencias especiales para HAMs QRP ? 73 de HOC - LU4AAV

Your Page have a very good design, keep it. - YC8HW

John: I've always enjoyed your QRP column. I have been using a Ten-Tec Century 21,(5 - 20 watts, CW only) but recently it became inoperative (perhaps a static discharge). Being forced off the air has really made me appreciate what I had. Due in part to economic considerations I'm presently building a QRP kit from Ramsey - the only kind available here. I am concerned about how to zero beat with another station...how to listen and tx on same frequency. The kit I have is for 30m. Hope to catch you sometime. 73, Jim - VA3JEG

Greets from Hungary, John. Your pages are great. Ati (another QRP'er ;)) - HA8LGA

I work strictly cw via qrp, mostly on 20 mtrs, but the way that the bands are opening up i'm starting to give keen interest to 15, and 10 mtrs also. Presently using a QRP+ having retired my homebrew transceiver after accomplishing qrp dxcc with it. The antenna is nothing much right now just a vertical for 20 using open line feeders with the recent ZM-2 tuner. Hopefully within the next few days I will have a loop up for 20 meters, depends on the wx hi! My operation is quite sporadic, and just operate when the feeling is right, usually on the bench running some kind of weird experiment hi! Started qrp as a test back in 54 using a 6AQ5 in the final, my real interest in qrp started with the Army when I seen what we could accomplish with low power out in the field, as a result the last 10 years has been devoted strictly to qrp operations. Nice web page, ope to work you someday 72/73 for a Happy New Year. de Frank in Korea - HL9BK

Great web site. I am continually amazed at how many great ham sites there are. The web permits me out here in the boondocks to enjoy ham radio in real time. - DU3NXE

I've been an ham since 1966, when Indonesia started to recover from the September 1965 abortive coup d'etat. I'm one of the old hams in Indonesia and have had experienced the change from homebrew to black boxes made in JA land. The rig currently in use is an ICOM 751 into a homebrew all band dipole. My computer setup is a Macintosh Performa 6400/200 with which I have as much fun as with my radio rig. I don't DX nowadays, since my conditions at work prevent me from spending too much time at the mike. I'm teaching at the Bogor Agricultural University, at the Department of Biology. I'm married and have three sons who are all married and have flown out of the old house. My wife and I spend much time with our two grandchildren, a boy aged 5 and a lovely girl aged 3. I have one other hobby, spending time with my Land Rover 4wheeler vintage 76. I also am a keen photographer and like to do some hunting (we are now allowed to use guns again, but I'm using a Beeman airgun. So that's it in a nutshell!!!! - YB1AB

Hi thanks for the pictures. I had taken a fancy for QRP and even though i have yet to perfect morse to enter the real world of what i call radio with home brew gear i shall have to wait for perhaps a couple more years. I am drawn to qrp perhaps of my technical back ground in radio electronics. Most of my ham friends don't share the same thoughts in qrp as they reckon life is too short for that. regards, Aisea - 3D2AA

# Hi, John, I am number 13000. Your WWW presence is really something. So good to have it as a reference. I am just recovering my computer stuff after our Big Ice Storm, 4 days no power etc, right in the middle of upgrading the main systems here. Keep looking for you on the air but have not heard you for a while now. All my antennas at my remote site are all gone due to the ice so signals will be weaker for a while hi. Regards, Larry - VA3LK / WA3ZIA

As first i got my callsign, 6 years ago. Now I plan to take the intermediate class in order to play the HF band. I would like to as you some questions 1. morse code, is it hard to get familiar or not? (in case of listening only) 2. in case of sending the morse code, how long do you take time in practice? 3. is it difficult to play the HF band? Now I can play only 144-146 MHz. only, so I'm feel a bit more boring. Then decided to take the action moving from beginner class to the intermediate class. And the last one is "what morse code program do you use to practice your skill?" Thank you very much for your help. - HS0IXO

Dear Sir: From your Homepage, it give me a lot of detail information to radio Electronic technology. Thank for your knowledge and amateur's spirit. I am a Ham resident in China, Callsign:BD7WGL. I usually operate in 2, 10, 20 and 40meter. My radio machine is "XDD-J", It's a old military radio with a series crystals, Maximum output Power is twenty Watts. Last year, I builted the Multi-Dipole Antenna above my house. I already contacted with Asia,North America, Europe,Africa. I enjoy the packet communication and satellite communication too, I often contact with Japan and Korea in RS-10/12. I had designed the MSK 9600bps wireless Modem in local packet network with Chip XR-2206/XR-2211. Recently, I and my friends plan to write some radio electronic tips give the local radio amateurs. We wish it will be develop the technology levels of local radio amateurs. Although we have some experience, but we need more detail information for radio. In china, it's very difficulty that we look for some radio amateurs Handbooks, manuals, Guides. So if you have some old radio books, for example some old version "The Radio Amateur's Handbook", "Antenna Manual" etc, it's saved in your storeroom for longtime, Maybe it'll help us. If you wish to help us, please reply Email to us. We will give you post mail address. Sorry for poor english and disturb you! Thank you! 73! Yours Sincerely Qin Xu - BD7WGL

# Hi John I am going to read your 1000 days of QRP,I saw your article in the latest FISTS Keynote. Sounds very interesting John,you must be a dedicated QRp op.

So hope to run into you on the air some day,my FISTS nr is 2767. 73 de Rick - VE3FMC

Hi John. I enjoy reading your column in Key Notes every month. My FISTS nr is 2767. I am active on 40 meters quite a bit and although I do not own a QRP rig yet I do turn the drive down to 4 watts on my Icom 720A and I am always amazed at who and where I can work with that amount of power to a 40 meter loop. Your operating tips for QRP'ers is helpful, and I'm sure many enjoy it in key Notes. Keep up the good work John. 73 de Rick FISTS 2767 - VE3FMC

We have had quite a set to in our national ham magazine about the pro's and con's of keeping CW in our tests. This is how I read about Your Page. THE CANADIAN AMATEUR The article re Your web site in,CW Today . . . Column is written by Larry Kayser VA3LK June/97 issue page 20 Internet site of the month Congratulations John,a job well done, If you would like a copy of our The Canadian Amateur I certainly would be pleased to mail you a copy so you could see what a fine magazine we have representing Radio Amateurs of Canada ( RAC ) It's 3am I better shut up and go to bed.

Hi John... I'm just in the process of getting back on the air after an enforced QRT of more than 15 years. Unfortunately the place where I was living had more restrictions than a prison. I'm not retired and living in six, well wooded, acres on a small trout lake in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. I'm just starting to put my station back together again and hope to be back on the air within a few weeks. I came across your site during my Webcrawler search for SOWP information. I was an active member several years ago, but moves and the enforced QRT has resulted in a loss of contact with the organization. If you know of any way of contacting them again (if the organization is still active), I'd appreciate it if you would let me know. 73 DE Fred - VE6XX/VE7TOW

# Thanks to John himself for telling me about his excellent page. My ham career and philosophy is very close to John's, although my achievements are not so high. Main thing is we can share the pleasure of CW - the King of modes, hand in hand with Queen QRP. Thanks, John, for the great work and very best regards to you. Cu on air? - YL2PG

Hi John! I'm pleased to tell you that I'm now enjoying the opportunity to do a bit of surfing and update my home page. Your page is a never ending story of CW and QRP, both of which I enjoy. I will need more time to explore the links you have that are new to me, but already I can sincerely assure you that I really enjoy your page and already found many things new to me. I very much like your concept of mingling your own story/attitude with the facts and links. Perhaps because our philosophy is so close :-) de Gunar - YL2PG

Great site with lots of interesting reading. I must get my Rhombics re-strung. My brother Roy (ZS6QU) is a keen CW operator and used to remote control my station on the 120 acre Rhombic farm. 73 Dave - ZS6DN

Nice to meet you, I am very active with QRP construction together with about a dozen other hams spread around South Africa. Am always looking for new diagramatic ideas and new integrated circuits to use for construction. BEST 73'S - ZS6RZ
