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.
