Just putting feelers out. Anybody interested in starting a QRP group locally for meetups, activities and interest meetings?? There is a lot of cool stuff happening in the SOTA POTA QRP world right now. I was one of the people that was part of founding the Colorado QRP club back in the day and I think it would be fun to get something going in the Boise area locally. Thoughts? See MoreSee Less

I am interested. WC7M

I like QRP and it’s a good time in the sunspot cycle for it. CW mode, mostly, for me. I’m traveling for work a lot lately, but if I’m in town it would be fun to meet up with other QRPers. W7GRM

Great!

I am QRP on activations and from home 90% of the time. I made a QSO with Morocco during the CQWW Cw contest at5 watts and it was an ATNO for me.

I'm interested – WE7SAR

Earl Boaz staying warm and activating POTA. Snowy and cold this morning but the woodstove is doing its job.

Ok I have to say it’s soooooo much nicer playing radio with the heil pro 6’s and a foot peddle. The difference is night and day. See MoreSee Less

We are looking for a 20 foot shipping container to upgrade the building at the lower Squaw butte repeater site. If anybody has any knowledge of one at a great price please let us know. This is a shared site for a few organizations and we have our 501c3 if that helps. See MoreSee Less

I would suggest maybe asking the place here in Ontario if they need a tax write off and see if they would donate one to a 501c3. Just might be an option.
