[247 votes since 2018-03-19]
  They were never really going to embrace the hobby

Spotlight K1OE qrp station
K1OE qrp station in addition to a base station, I have set up this simple qrp station beside my business computer. having it available like this makes it very inviting to use. and qrp with a battery is so simple! I am doing more cw as a result. maybe an idea for others.

Strays Add a Stray!
The main beauty of Ham Radio is the ability to make contact with another Ham anywhere in the World at any time ! What a reality !! '73; George.
