Introduction

Do you enjoy QRP, Homebrewing or CW ?

The VK QRP Club exists for those who enjoy low power amateur radio. It has grown strongly since startup in 1983 and we now have nearly 300 enthusiast members worldwide. Membership will be of benefit if you are interested in QRP using any of the modes (not just CW) or homebrewing.

Lo-Key Magazine

Members receive four issues of our journal Lo-Key each year. This is a major link between members and contains a range of articles on simple theory, operating and homebrewing projects, most aimed at people interested in building (and operating) homebrew gear.

Bits'n'Kits

To help you build the projects you see in the Amateur Radio and electronics magazines, the Club runs a mail-order components supply service for members. From this source the homebrewer can obtain toroids, RF transistors and many other components at much reduced prices. It's easy to save your annual subs with one order! Check out the Components Price List (VKQRP-BitsKits-Prices.pdf).

Contests

We encourage members to participate in and enjoy the range of on-air contests available worldwide and to prove that QRP works well with your homebrew rig or wound-down commercially built radio.

Have a look at the Contests page to see what's coming up next.

Awards

Obtaining the new MPK Award (Milliwatts Per Kilometre) is a great achievement. You may already be able to claim it and join a small but growing group. Consult the Awards page for full details.

On Air Activity

The club encourages members to be active and to meet on air. Check out the Nets and Frequencies page for details on where to find members to contact.

Join!
