I just received this certificate in the mail from the ARRL for my contest entry in the June VHF contest. I operated the “Single Operator Portable” category, also known as QRP, and placed 6th in the US & Canada, 1st in the Rocky Mt Division and 1st in the Colorado Section. For more information, see my comments on the ARRL web site by clicking here.
QRP on VHF? Sure, why not? I recently started writing a column on VHF QRP for the QRP Amateur Radio Club International publication QRP Quarterly. I’ve gotten interested in low power amateur radio operation (all bands), mostly associated with hiking, backpacking and other forms of portable operation.
