Charleston Hamfest Award

My sincere thanks to the Chalreston Hamfest Committee for the "Kanawha Valley Amateur Radio Operator of the Year 2015 Award"  

This award caught me totally by surprise. The last two years I 've done a "power point presentation" about QRP and CW at this hamfest. Last year at this hamfest, I set up and made QRP contacts using a simple wire antenna (dipole) to Denmark, Germany, and Spain. My presentation is always focused on the NAQCC Club.

It's been a good two years for the West Virginia Chapter of the NAQCC Club. We plan to be around for many more years!

Hello Folks,

Thank you for your kind words. I'll continue to always do my very best to promote QRP CW. Isn't it amazing how well a few watts and a simple wire antenna can accomplish? I know you all know what is possible, but just think of all those who think the opposite? We've got to get the word out!
