All of this at no cost to you. I repeat there is no charge for the  
forum and all other activities.

So if you are in the area, stop by and say hi, or if you know someone  
in the area that wants to get started on VHF, send them down to the  
You can signup for an official QRPacificon name badge for the forum at:

There is no charge for the badge either.
QRPers are a friendly group, enthusiastic, they like to build, like to  
operate, and like to operate in the field. So I think that they  
represent the ideal demographic to get involved in VHF. Please stop by  
and help me evangelize for VHF. Thanks - Duffey
