October Meeting – QRP Evening

Thursday 17th October 7.30 for 8pm at the Robin’s Nest, Cheltenham Football Club

QRP (ie low power) operation is very popular especially among home-brewers. Many QRP enthusiasts belong to the G-QRP Club which has several thousand members and publishes a quarterly journal full of circuits, projects and news of members activities. Membership is only £6 a year. A number of CARA members are also members of the G-QRP Club.

The aim of this month’s meeting is to promote the concept and fun of QRP (ie low power) operation and to share our own experiences with other club members. We’ll do this primarily with a display of QRP equipment and a display of books covering QRP.

Meeting such as these, without a formal speaker, are popular so do come along and enjoy an informal meeting with fellow club members. Your help is needed to ensure a successful meeting – please bring along examples QRP gear, whether commercial, home-brew or ex-military, accompanied by books and any photos you may have of QRP activities. Working displays would be great although problems with aerials and noise may well arise.

 We will be please to welcome visitors and prospective members.
