QRP Construction and Operating – Steve Hartley, G0FUW

QRP Construction and Operating – Steve Hartley, G0FUW

This week at Pine Trees, we will joined by a person who’s name will be very familiar to anyone who has undertaken Amateur Radio training over the last 20 odd years.

Steve Hartley, G0FUW, came to Amateur Radio from the CB boom of the 1980’s. By 1986, he had passed the 12wpm CW test and gained his now familiar G0FUW call.

Steve has delivered training since 1990 and is the organiser of the succesful ‘Bath Distance Learning Course’. Steve is also the editor of the Intermediate and Advanced training publications, which are such a valuable resource to those taking the associated courses and exams.

Alongside the training courses, Steve also organises the ‘Bath Buildathon’ every January, which encourages Radio Amateurs to try their hand at construction, whilst under supervision. It is also the ideal opportunity for those undertaking Intermediate training to build that all import construction project needed to pass the exam.

Another of Steve’s passions is constructing and operating QRP equipment and it is this subject which forms the basis of Steve’s presentation to us on Thursday evening.

So please join us at Pine Trees from 7pm on Thursday 20th February for what is sure to be a very interesting and informative talk.
