Product description

Product Description

Minimum QRP is full of ideas for the radio amateur who wants to get the most from their modest station and antenna. Apply its tested strategies today for more success on the bands, whether you're into portable operating, DX, awards, contests or more. While pitched at the QRPer, those with 100 watts and simple antennas will also find much of interest. It's for a broad audience, including newcomers, the more experienced and those returning to amateur radio.

After touring various facets of QRP, Minimum QRP gives some forthright but often forgotten advice on equipment. Is the commercial, kit or homebrew transceiver you're considering sufficient to give spontaneous contacts almost any time you switch on? This book guides you through the choices out there, with an emphasis on affordable and effective.

Antennas are next. One size and type does not fit all. The right choice depends on location, style of operating and activity patterns in your area. Some suggestions, based on the author's extensive experience of restricted space and portable QRP, are given here.

Some QRPers have suitable equipment and antennas yet don't make as many contacts as they should. Reasons for this can come down to choice of band, understanding local activity and operating technique. Whether you're after DX or a local ragchew, Minimum QRP gives some crafty tips on working the most with the least.

Nearly every aspect of amateur radio can be done with five watts. Indeed QRP can sometimes add to its enjoyment due to simple to construct and lightweight equipment. If you get bored with one facet there's always another. You'll find information on such QRP sub-interests, such as weak signal modes, VHF and pedestrian mobile in this book.

Still not sure? View some of the author's other material at http://www.vk3ye.com and http://www.youtube.com/vk3ye , With much new content, Minimum QRP consolidates the author's experience in the one reference. With over 200 pages and numerous illustrations it represents excellent value.
