THE QRP CLUBS LIST The QRP Clubs List
September 08, 1995

The ordering of this list is somewhat arbitrary though it tries to
follow the alphabet :-) No weighing is intended.
Two list entries here are somewhat special:
- The "MFJ 90's Radio Club" is focussed on the MFJ 90xx series of
QRP transceivers but not affiliated with the company. Rather than
being a club it is more a newsletter and its readership.
- The "AGCW-DL" is not a QRP club but rather a CW club. It is in the
list because of its strong QRP activites and because there is no
dedicated German QRP club.
In addition to all that you'll also find information about defunct
clubs and newsletters, ceased activities, 'unofficial' groups and a
small paragraph about the world famous IQ (Internet QRP-L) Club ;-)
Spelling and punctuation tries to follow European standards.
~Subject: The format:
FULL: Full name
PRES: Club President
ADDR: Contact address for membership and info
SINC: In existance since ...
COST: Membership cost (yearly)
NEWS: Club newsletter, name and frequency
NUMB: Current membership numbers (approximately)
MEET: Regular meeting
QNET: QRP nets, 'on the air' meetings
PROJ: Previous and current projects
TEST: Contests, activity periods
The NUMB entry is only meant to give a rough indication about how big
the club is. The numbers given are not precise and cannot be. The
number of active members is not equal to the last issued membership
number - some former members are SK now or have left the club. A good
indication of active membership numbers is the number of people that
subscribe to the club newsletter.
The PROJ entry isn't meant to be a listing of all the building
projects that any club member has ever done. Rather it should list all
the projects that were designed by a club member, were realized by
several others and are available as a circuit diagram, kit or
whatever. This entry shows you where household names like 'Epiphyte'
or 'Sierra' originated.
Similar story with the TEST entry: It is not a list of activities
the particular club *participates* in, but rather a list of
activities that *originate* within the club. There is not space
enough to give details. By supplying the name everybody can see that
a special activity exists which will give him the starter to ask for
I would also like to supply information about regular 'on the air'
meetings of the clubs (entry QNET). If you know about such activities,
please notify me; my address is at the end of this file.
Addresses in <brackets> are Internet email addresses; those in
[brackets] are valid in the Amateur Packet Radio network.

o QRP society of Great Britain (1949-1964?)
o Pacific Amateur Radio Group (PARG, ?)
o Illinois QRP Society (ILQRPS) (?)
o "K5FO QRP newsletter" (1994)
o "The Milliwatt" (1970-1975)
o EA8 QRP-DX Club
~Subject: 'Unofficial' groups:
o The DRAGONSLAYERS QRP Group
This is mainly a Dutch group of amateurs with guest members
from two other countries only. Dick Pascoe, G0BPS, is the only
British member. Three Germans are also members being a family,
husband, wife and son. There are no membership fees, no
magazine, no contests etc, just a group of friends. Membership
is by invitation only!
o Zuni Looper Mountain Expeditionary Force
This is a local gathering of QRP ARCI members in Southern
California, who operate Field Day with QRP; the name refers to
the particular part of the State or National Park they always
operate from (the Zuni Loop area of the park). They are well
known and admired for the *HUGE* wire antennas they erect.
o Maryland Milliwatt Club
The club was founded in 1992 by two members. Membership is by
invitation only. Mailing Address: Maryland Milliwatt Club, 3052
Fairland Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20904.
o World QRP Federation (WQF)
The only thing I know is that Gus, G8PG is president. I suppose
it's a kind of QRP cover organisation. Can anyone give more
info on this?
o The WVQRP Commandos
o The LIMARC QRP Heavy Hitters
(LIMARC = Long Island Mobile Amateur Radio Club)
o Old Coots QRP Group
I was using the club list maintained by Bill Kelsey, N8ET, as a basis
for this list. Much later when perusing the QRP-L archives I
discovered that Chuck Adams, K5FO, had already compiled a list which
contained clubs that I didn't know about. Additional information came
from other contributions to QRP-L and from assorted printed material,
most notably publications of the G-QRP Club. Thanks for very helpful
contributions and corrections from (sorted by callsign):

~Subject: Update information:
I intend to make this list up to date and as complete as possible. For
this I need your help.
If you find outdated information or errors in this list, please let me
know. If you know of any QRP club that you feel should be in this
list, then let me know, too. The same applies if you have ideas on how
to improve this list. Since English is a second language to me, I'd
also be grateful for hints on mistakes with grammar or vocabulary.
Please note that I try to stick to European conventions in spelling
and punctuation 'cause this is what I learned in school.
For the most up-to-date copy of this list, send email to
<firstname.lastname@example.org> or a packet radio message to
