The West Virginia Chapter of the NAQCC Club


I've reached a peak in this QRP radio hobby where I have a deep desire to share my enthusiasm for Morse Code and QRP radio with those in my  home state of West Virginia. The announcement of the West Virginia Chapter of the North American QRP CW Club is in the  current newsletter  of the NAQCC club this month.


I've included a link to our "West Virginia Chapter" page on the right side of this blog, so be sure to check it for the latest information on activities and feel free to drop your comments and suggestions for our  NAQCC WV Chapter on this site.

West Virginia is a beautiful place to live and we're known as the "Mountain State" for good reasons. There are more than one hundred "mountain tops" at more than 4,000 ft elevation. West Virginia is also a "rural" state where electrical noise is nearly "zero" in many places. This makes an "excellent" venue for low power Morse Code radio operations.

This local chapter is for the CW QRP operators in West Virginia. I've discovered around 40 NAQCC members on their national membership list. I find around 20 are "radio active" in our state. I hope to hear from and meet many of them as soon as possible.

Listen for our chapter on the standard QRP frequencies of all bands. Check the  NAQCC WV Chapter   for our future activities.

If you're a WV QRP CW radio operator, and not on the NAQCC membership roles; drop me a line and I'll be more than happy to include you on their (and our) e-mail list. Membership is absolutely and unconditionally "free".

John,

I look forward to hearing and working a lot of QRP SOTA activations from West Virginia!

Good morning John, sounds like things are happening there. It's always nice to get involved in a club. At the moment I am not but on the weekend I did have a ham come and pickup a power supply I was selling. It was refreshing to have a nice long conversation about radio. He stayed for about a 1/2 hour and it was a nice time.

Hello Mike,

I've enjoyed this hobby so much..it's time to give something back and encourage others to do the same.

I hope to make it a good bunch of WV CW operators.
