QRP Calling Frequencies


Over the years there has been some disagreement as to what the QRP calling frequencies should actually be. These
disagreements are due, in part, to changes in WARC frequencies, license structure, and other modes (i.e., rtty
calling frequencies, voice "watering holes," etc.). On Father's Day 2000 (June 18th) I proposed (over QRP-L, CQC-L
and various private lists and on-air nets) that the amateur community re-examine the QRP calling frequencies. After
a few months, and many Email exchanges, it was agreed that the calling frequencies would stay where they are (for
the time being...).
