QRP and Tailgate Tech

LWRA SPONSORS A MONTHLY QRP AND TAILGATE TECH.

We meet on the last Saturday of the month, and test out new gear configurations and deployment strategies. We meet for about 3 hours similar to sprints that are held all over the world.  Most months the QRP Expedition is held at a different park to add variety and a nice change of scenery for the QRP Expeditions.

Each month now has a theme emphasizing a different mode and or technology in amateur radio.


NEXT SCHEDULED QRP AND TAILGATE TECH – Sat. Sept 24th, 2022

Venue: Crystal Lake Park – 205 N 5th St. Lake Wales, FL 33853
