KC8AON'S QRP WORLD

NOTICE: DUE TO THE FACT THAT I HAVE A LIFE - FAMILY,FULL TIME JOB, SLEEPING, I DO NOT OFFER BUILDING SERVICES FOR THE PROJECTS ON THIS SITE - I BARELY HAVE TIME TO BUILD THEM FOR MYSELF. THE INFO IS PROVIDED FOR THOSE THAT DO WISH TO BUILD THE PROJECTS THEMSELVES. AND IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BUILD THE PROJECTS FROM THE SCHEMATICS, PICTURES, AND DESCRIPTIONS I HAVE PROVIDED , THEY ARE THE BEST I CAN DO - SORRY ! I WOULD SUGGEST YOU LEARN HOW TO READ SCHEMATICS, AFTERALL WE ARE HAMS !

ALSO, I HAVE SHUT DOWN MY INTERNET SERVICE SO THE EMAIL ADDRESS QRP_1@JUNO.COM IS NO LONGER A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS. I DID THIS DUE TO SOME PERSONAL PROBLEMS AT HOME SO I'M SORRY IF YOU HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CONTACT ME AND HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TOO. MAYBE I'LL RETURN IN THE FUTURE - MAYBE ?

Psa 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psa 18:3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Many thanks to Bob, AF2Q for making this site a reality, I could not have done it without his help !

It is strictly up to you to operate only within your license priveleges. And always listen before you transmit to insure you are not causing interference to another station in QSO ! Note: Monthly QRP Field Day frequencies are 2 khz up from standard QRP calling frequencies



This is me at the operating position at station KC8AON. This is where all my in shack on the air operating takes place and where most of my homebrew projects take shape and come to life. Main rig is a Yaesu FT-840 with an Icom 706MkII as a backup. My QRP rigs see much more use than the rigs on the desk though !


QRP Field operations !

Heres a shot of my field setup including my SW-20+ rig, gel cell battery pack, AZ SQrpions paddle, endfed halfwave wire tuner, and the endfed halfwave wire supported by a 20' crappie pole during one of the Monthly QRP Field Days.
I have several QRP rigs including my SW-20+, SW-30+ and SW-40+ from Small Wonder Labs. I also have an Icom 703, and an old Yaesu FT-7 in good working order. QRP is a real thrill to me, and I love building the equipment as much as I love to operate it !
I hope to share some of my homebrew QRP projects and some antenna ideas with you on this website - hope you enjoy !
