Pacific Northwest QRP Group

Amateur Radio Low Power Operators of the Pacific Northwest

QRP is a special ham radio abbreviation that means to operate at low power. To many amateur radio operators it means operating at 5 watts or less transmitter power. To some it means building the radios they use to operate at low power. QRP operators have varying interests and operating styles. The one thing that most QRP operators like to do is to gather with other QRP operators to talk about operations, equipment, operating styles, and anything else that pertains to their hobby.

The Pacific Northwest QRP Group was created to give QRP operators in the Pacific Northwest the opportunity to engage with other QRP operators to share their passion for low power operating, building and experimenting with electronic circuitry and helping each other learn more about all facets of our fascinating hobby.

We host a monthly gathering called P&C (Pie and Coffee) at Bob's Burgers and Brew in Everett, Washington, and host an annual event in July at Valley Camp in North Bend, Washington called Salmoncon.

In addition, we sponsor an annual fun QRP event on the air called the Sasquatch Stomp. Click on their links above for more detail.
