|Our very own Dick Schneider, CQC #155 (ABØCD), Low Down editor, and author of Water (A Vic Bengston Investigation) came in as Number 1 in the Hilltopper category for the CQ World Wide VHF contest 2013! Linked, below, is the CQ article quoting Dick as saying, "First time VHF contesting. Stuck with QRP Hilltopper class. I am an HF QRPer. Arrow beam on 2 meters. Makeshift rotatable dipole - 50 cents worth of hookup wire and piece of pvc - on 6 meters. FT 817. Sat on the ground in the hills above Denver. What an absolute blast!" Congratulations Dick!!|

Help us find a new meeting location!
So, the Colorado QRP Club is still looking for a permanent location for our bimonthly meetings. The library works great but there's never a guarantee as to the room's availability and, like we mentioned above, "There's no place like home!"

|Summits on the Air (SOTA) is an award scheme for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners that encourages portable operation in mountainous areas. SOTA has been carefully designed to make participation possible for everyone - this is not just for mountaineers! There are awards for activators (those who ascend to the summits) and chasers (who either operate from home, a local hilltop or are even Activators on other summits).|
