Welcome to the Virginia QRP Society's feeble attempt at electronic
publishing. Some of us have
grown tired of paying for various QRP newsletters and quarterly publications and believe that there
are enough available resources in the ranks of our QRP brotherhood to provide a web site, updated
monthly, where readers can enjoy an assortment of articles written by fellow QRP enthusiasts. In
addition to monthly articles, we will strive to provide our readers with links to QRP/Amateur radio
websites that are updated frequently, not just sitting there "dead". Isn't it frustrating to link to a
site that hasn't been updated in six months or more?
Below are the links to the articles submitted by VQS members since the beginning of this
and links to the three monthly columns submitted by members of the Virginia QRP Society. W4IM
and AE4CU will be submitting an article each month on the subject of his choice. We are presently
awaiting a Ft Tuthill report from W4IM and another antenna article from AE4CU. I will maintain
the "Doug Drudge" report which is an unbiased, candid monthly report on the information
contained on the various QRP web sites in cyberspace.
There are not many articles yet, but we hope that will change soon. None of these articles were
written by well known QRP gurus, just regular guys like you. VQS is now aggressively recruiting new
articles to be submitted to this site. We hope to provide a site where you can surf through an archive
of QRP related articles on subjects such as Rig/Kit reviews, antenna construction techniques, field
day and QRPttf articles and many other subjects. While I have your ear, I'll take this opportunity to
solicit any article you would like to submit whether you are a member or not. Just e-mail it to VQS
and it will be published here, no editing, no questions asked.....Hey, we're not the best, but what
the heck, it's not only free, but updated at least monthly...
Please visit us again soon, maybe by next month, we will have some new reading
for you. 73/72
