Hey all,

Does anyone know of a QRP club in the greater Cincinati, Ohio area?
If not, is anyone in the Cincinnati area interested in starting one?
It would be very handy to have some local qrp'ers to help field test
antennas and new rigs.

Hello Dieter,

 I visited the Greater Cincinnati area 2 year ago
and I did the same question. I didn't find any at
that time. So I got on 2 meters and there were
one or two repeaters but nothing materlized.

Go to a local club meeting and just start a QRP
club.  That is what I did in Eastern PA. That was
over 2 1/2 years ago and we are now 33 members
and growing. One hitch with our club, you must live
in or come and visit PA and operate QRP.

I started the club just through a question on QRP-L.

>>Good Luck!!!
