A touch of chirp possibly will be in the air when the QRP-CONTEST-COMMUNITY
cordially is inviting to the
34th H O M E B R E W & O L D T I M E – E Q U I P M E N T – P A R T Y
( HOT – PARTY ) at 21 – Nov – 2021
Once a year homebrewers and enthusiasts of oldtime-equipment together are
introducing their creations on the HOT-PARTY. A taste of chirp is in the air
and switching from transmitting to receiving may last a little
longer…Skilful revived museum pieces are giving signs of life as well as
brandnew constructions around ICs and SMD.
Also soldering kits like Elecraft K2, K1 or Pixie, PFR3, SW40, SW80,
SUDDEN RX TX, Sierra, BlueCoolRadio, QRP Labs QCX etc. are very welcome.
Non soldering kits like Elecraft KX3 are only check logs-
Loving restored and maintained commercial radio equipment meets rigorous
You don’t need a complete homebrewed station or a complete ”line”.
An old RX or a homemade TX ”stand alone” is sufficient for your entrance.
No ”taboos” like a 5W-QRP-limit narrows down the freedom of this meeting on
”Anything goes” like ”HOT” suggests? Not quite so: the coincidence of
”buy & plug & play & don’t have the slightest idea about anything” is
invited to stay outside the PARTY.
