Welcome to the Verde Valley Amateur Radio Association
QRP Special Interest Group
What the heck is QRP anyway? - Well, although there's really no hard and fast definition, QRP generally means to turn your transmitter power down, way down... 5 Watts output, or less, is usually considered QRP.
But why turn your power down? - The reasons are as varied as there are Ham operators! Some like the challenge while others simply enjoy back-to-basics and the tiny expense of using
small radios over long distances.
Won't you join the fun? - Beginners and Old-timers all agree that QRP brings a special indescribable delight that a pair of expensive high-power transmitting finals just can't duplicate!
