WAB Square  SD91

HF operation is 25 W or less. My antenna is a Doublet in the roof space of my house.


QSL info: NO BURO please. LoTW and eQSL preferred.

I confirm 100% all QSLs received (LoTW, eQSL, Direct). For Direct please send envelope with address. No postage required.

I upload all QSOs except G/M to LoTW.



I was first licensed in 1963. Not active from 1994-2010. Back on the air from 2011.

In the 1980s I read Adrian Weiss (W0RSP) 's book "The Joy of QRP," in which he described some amazing QSOs which had been achieved with powers at the milliwatt and even microwatt levels. Inspired by what I had read, in 1988, I built an OXO transmitter (GM3OXX design) for 21 MHz which had a CW output of just under 0.5 W. Imagine my surprise when my first call to WE2L was answered (10700 km per watt! ). Bitten by the QRP bug, I made contacts all over Europe and also one to UA9 using this transmitter.

My main interests are HF datamodes, mainly PSK31, PSK63, JT65 and JT9. I also use RTTY, CW and  SSB. From 2011-14, I used a FT817 with 5W output. I now use power up to 25W!

What can you do with less than 25W and an indoor antenna? I have been very surprised:

DXCC    137  worked   (123 with 5W)         130 confirmed

US States   45

WAC   (except Antarctica)

Best Dx   VK7XX     17360 km    (5W  JT65)
