  This file contains information about the following QRP clubs:

   o 9A-QRP Club
   o Arbeitsgemeinschaft CW / Activity Group Telegraphy (AGCW-DL)
   o QRP Club ARI
   o QRP Amateur Radio Club International (QRP ARCI)
   o Benelux-QRP Club
   o Grupo-QRP do Brasil
   o QRP Club of British Columbia (BC QRP)
   o QRP Society of Central Pennsylvania (QSCP)
   o Cleveland QRP Amateur Radio Club
   o Colorado QRP Club (CQC)
   o CW Operators QRP Club
   o Durham Region QRP Club
   o EA QRP Club
   o G-QRP Club (G-QRP-C)
   o GW QRP Club
   o Italian QRP Club (I QRP)
   o JARL QRP Club (JA-QRP)
   o MFJ 90's Radio Club
   o Michigan QRP Club (MI QRP, M-QRP)
   o The QRP Club of New England (NE QRP)
   o The QRP Club of Northern California (NorCal QRP)
   o NorthEastern Illinois QRP Society (NEIQS)
   o The NorthWest QRP Club (NW QRP)
   o NorthTexas QRP Club (NorTex, NQC)
   o OK QRP Club (from the Czech Republic)
   o Oklahoma QRP Club (OK QRP)
   o St. Louis QRP Society (SLQS)
   o U-QRP Club
   o WI QRP Club
   o YO-QRP Club
   o ZS-Algoa QRP Group

  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:
---------------------

  ABBR: Abbreviation
  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
  AWRD: Awards
  COMM: Comments

  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
  more information.

  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.

~Subject: Defunct clubs and newsletters, ceased activities:
-----------------------------------------------------------

    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):

  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.
