QRP Honor Roll

I'm sure it's not easy copying my minimal QRP signal on the bands, especially when the sunspots are absent and conditions are poor. However there are many courteous operators who will go the last mile in an effort to work the QRP station. I'd like to "honor" those operators by listing those with whom I have made at least 50 QSOs with my CW/QRP signals and thank them for doing so. Many of the QSOs involved are from contests since contest operators are among the best in the world at picking weak signals out of the QRM, QRN, QSB, etc. to make those few extra points that may help them to win a prize.

To make my 'Honor Roll', a station must have worked me at least 50 times combined contest and regular QSOs. I've also worked some of the stations back in the 60's when I ran more than 5 watts. Also when I used other calls like N3AQC, N3A, NY3EC and others. The listing here only includes contacts when I ran 5 watts or less and used my K3WWP call.

Some of the stations listed are contest club stations. I didn't make the effort to find out who the operators were. I've worked some of the stations under different callsigns as they changed with the vanity callsign program. I made no effort to combine totals in that case. The list is compiled simply from call letter listings in my master computer log. I did count /P or /M stations since my log contains a 'base' field which strips the portable designation from the call. For example the 'call' field may be K4BAI/4 and the base field is just K4BAI.

I will update this page occasionally, but not regularly. It was last updated on November 18, 2022.

Tied stations are listed alphanumerically.

I hope you find this interesting. If you're a QRPer, you can count on these stations to hear and work you. I'm fairly certain of that. These stations have great receiving antennas and/or great 'ears'.
