Newfoudland - QRP QSO

This is not my best QSO, but with 2,5 watt (RIG is EGV40) and short dipole on a tree on 40 m, it is a QSO of 1931 kilometers per watt.

QRP 14 MHz Transceiver of YU2TT

YU2TT, Vojijslav, sent me the schemas of his transceiver, ad i am happy to publish his work. So, every one  with some experience in electronics can  build his own transceiver ! In same ways it is inspired by the Toucan of F6BQU, but it has its own changes.

Yesterday i was in QSO with YU2TT, Vojislav from Lapovo, Serbia.  Even if it is not one of the longest links, it is very interesting!

We were both in QRP; i userd a microBITX; he used a self made transceiver, a very very good job!

Here are the QSL and some images of his transceiver. There are still OM building their RIGS !!!

Some images of the self made RIG:

Many compliments to Vojislav !!! In the next post i will put some schemas.

QRP activity on 20 and 15 meters

This is my QRP soft activity on 20 and 15 meters, from the 2 of february to the 23 of june 2018: with a RTX  microBITX, and vertical dipole 6 meters from the ground; a QRP and very simple and small station !

Vertical L dipole for 20 meters (and 15 meters)

Here is details of a vertical dipole, L shaped and folded, for restricted space; i use it in QRP on 20 meters and on 15 meters, with microBITX.

SWR: 1:1.2 on 20m; 1:1.6 on 15 m.

Testing QRP with microBITX

TESTING microBITX ON 20 m and 15 m

I am testing QRP CW with my microBITX: 5 watt and vertical dipole (better: L dipole):
using an old vertical antenna, cut for 20 m (5 meters sermivertical + 5 meters horizontal leg); SWR very low on 20 m (1:1.2) but also on 15 m (1:1.5).

Easy contacts with Europe, North America and Asiatic Russia, but also New Zeland in 15 m during the last contest.


- simple RTX
- very simple antenna
- interesting DX QSO in QRP!
