Formed in 1974, the GQRP Club is a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers to promote Low Power Radio. Whether you have a ham licence or not – everyone is welcome.

Some say life is too short for QRP, but the 4000 or so members of the G-QRP Club show that you don’t need to run high transmit powers to make contacts and enjoy amateur radio. The advantages of small portable gear, reduced risk of EMC problems, and the thrill of making contacts with ‘flea power’ are all good reasons to join the QRP community.

Membership fees for the G-QRP Club are about as low as you will find anywhere at just £6 a year. What does that get you?

Our well-respected quarterly journal SPRAT provides a fascinating read containing articles of varying complexity, from simple test equipment, to fully functioning radio transmitters and receivers. The technology ranges all the way from valves to modern digital circuits.

Members have access to our Club Sales who stock books, components and kits for those interested in homebrew. Prices are in keeping with a not-for-profit organisation.

We organise a number of activity periods, like our Winter Sports, and we have a range of awards to recognise achievements in QRP operating. Even in times of low sun spot activity, members are making contacts all over the globe. Could you be the next QRP Master?

Every year we host a Convention where members meet up with like-minded folk, learn from QRP-related talks and take part in a kit building workshop or Buildathon.

Members who hold a Full UK Licence can also be authorised to use the Club call, G5LOW.
