Fireflies QRP

Fireflies QRP is a new QPR-oriented group devoted to operating with low power, typically 5 watts or less. Fireflies QRP embraces the spirit of doing more with less. They encourage building your own equipment, also known as "home-brewing" and learning through experimentation.

Fireflies QRP host a variety of "in the park" throughout the events to encourage amateur radio operators young and old to enjoy the fun of amateur radio outdoors.

All licensed amateur radio operators interested in QRP are welcome to join, no dues... just fun!

Fireflies QRP hosts a weekly net on the 147.165 MHz KO9F repeater on Sunday evenings at 7:55 pm.
