Hallo dear friend,

You asked at 28.10.94 about " QRP+ 1st Test Results from Berlin":

> find it's really value for money?
yes, of course. The QRP+ is sold by Index Laboratories, 9318 Randall Drive
NW
Gig Harbour, WA 98332
FAX: 206-851 57 25
for 595,-$ plus shipment
After the two weeks test, i think it is worth the money. It is not a FT-
1000, but one gets a fine rig for the money. It is running SSB/CW from 1,3
up to 30 MHz, Rx complet and TX on the US Amateur Radio frequencies.

Yes, that does it mean. In the area of all band txvrs, tey normaly need
much power e.g. abt 1,2 Ampere. The low range of the QRP+ i have never
seen at comercial rigs, only homebrew rigs had such low current. I am
using a 2.4 Ah Pb Akku with a little solar paneel and that is enough for
days of operation.
