The Club’s Thursday evening net this week was facilitated by Brad VK2NMZ, the evenings topic was “QRP or QRO, what do you prefer?” The general consensus was QRP being the winner as it provides more of a challenge. One station spoke about QRO and the famous foot warmers that many 11 Meter Operators would run. A huge thank you to all those that participated.
