Hey all,



Does anyone know of a QRP club in the greater Cincinati, Ohio area?

If not, is anyone in the Cincinnati area interested in starting one?

It would be very handy to have some local qrp'ers to help field test

antennas and new rigs.

Hello Dieter,



 I visited the Greater Cincinnati area 2 year ago

and I did the same question. I didn't find any at

that time. So I got on 2 meters and there were

one or two repeaters but nothing materlized.



Go to a local club meeting and just start a QRP

club.  That is what I did in Eastern PA. That was

over 2 1/2 years ago and we are now 33 members

and growing. One hitch with our club, you must live

in or come and visit PA and operate QRP.



I started the club just through a question on QRP-L.



>>Good Luck!!!
