Whether you have a ham license or not - everyone is welcome. Our quarterly magazine SPRAT provides a fascinating read containing articles of varying complexity, from simple test equipment, to fully functioning radio transmitters and receivers.

No dues or membership fees - open to any licensed radio amateur or shortwave listener (SWL) worldwide with an interest in CW/QRP operation. Encouraging the use of CW and helping all hams increase CW speed and proficiency is a top club priority. Club activities are dedicated to QRP/QRPp operation, using CW and emphasize using simple wire antennas.

YouTube

YouTube has become a great addition to the world of amateur radio. You can quickly find how to videos in making any type of antenna, radio or watch others brave the weather and do POTA and SOTA  activations. Below is just a small list of some of my favorite channels. If you have a favorite let me know. 

  • KM4ACK Ham radio-related videos from an extra class ham that enjoys sharing. I enjoy homebrew projects and the Raspberry Pi.

 

New Desk

 I finally got my new homemade desk in. There is still a lot of organising and getting used to it but after a few weeks I really love it.
