I was wondering how many of my fellow Qrp brothers and sisters had an Elmer who was a Qrper?
The one guy I'd most consider my Elmer, K4DX (then WA4FVT), was not a QRPer by a long shot. He was a DXer. I remember the day I made my first DX QSO I walked down the street to use a pay phone to brag to Bill!
I read all the W1FB, W0RSP and W7ZOI articles and have always been somewhat interested in QRP operation. I never had any friends that were rabid QRPers. I did own a TenTec Argonaut for a while in the 80s, but I never used it very much. After a few years of inactivity, I decided that QRP would be a good choice for my return to activity. That was just over two years ago and I'm having as much fun as I've had in over 35 years as a ham!
