“With the better QRP rigs and kits out there, there seems to be a lot more hams getting into this area,” writes Ed Duclos, WA1ZCB. Duclos has built a Norcal keyer, Norcal BLT tuner, DSW II-40, Rock Mite (20, 40 and 80 meters) and a Elecraft KX1. “If you have not tried QRPing and kit building, you are missing out on a lot of fun. Better look into it,” adds Duclos.

WA1ZCB would like to organize interested hams, and possibly meet 1-2 times per month at the Southeastern Massachusetts Amateur Radio Association club house in Dartmouth. “Or, if it’s a nice warm day [we could] set up portable some place.”
