Gang, Issue #3 of QRPp will be mailed Dec. 1st, 1993. It is back from the
printers, and now I need to collate, fold, staple, and address all of the
pages. It is 60 pages long, as Chuck has said. We now have 172 members of
NorCal QRP club, and 143 subscribers to QRPp, the Journal of the NorCal QRP
Club. If you are interested in joining NorCal, membership is free, but to
receive the Journal, QRPp, which is published 4 times per year, we ask that
you pay a $5 subscription to offset the costs of printing and mailing.
The goal of QRPp is to provide information about QRP. It is not to make
money as you can obviously see from the amount that we charge. I subscribe
to most of the QRP magazines, and will say that QRPp is not designed to take
the place of any of them, just as a vehicle to dessiminate information.
I started the Journal for several reasons, one of which was that I wanted
to see if I could do it. There seemed to be a void here on the West Coast as
far as QRP groups go, and NorCal was in the right place at the right time. I
also felt that there were many talented people that I knew who had information
that deserved to be printed and preserved. It is a crime to not share the
wealth of your knowledge with others. Another reason for the journal was the
advice of Jim Fitton, W1FMR. Jim help me tremendously when Jim Cates, Wayne
Burdick and I were forming NorCal. In fact, he is still helping me. Jim
told me that to start a QRP club and make it successful, you needed several
ingredients. First a coordinator, second a newsletter editor, and third, a
technical advisor. Boy was he ever right. We took his advice to the letter,
and look what has happened with NorCal QRP Club.
Chuck Adams posted a review of the December issue of QRPp. I appreciate
his comments, and I have a suggestion. If you want QRP information take your
$20 and join the NW QRP Club, the NE QRP Club and NorCal QRP Club. You will
get a lot more information that pertains to QRP. If you want to receive the
December issue of QRPp, Jim Cates must have your application and $5 by Nov.
24, 1993. He needs your name, call, address, city, state, and zipcode.
Jim's address is:
Jim Cates, WA6GER
3241 Eastwood Rd.
Sacramento, CA 95821
Jim is the Coordinator of NorCal QRP Club. I am the editor of the QRPp, but
Jim gets all the money and pays all the bills. Have a good week, and keep
the mail coming.
