QSL FROM PIRATE STATION “QRP” FROM THE NETHERLANDS

QRP started broadcasting in 2013 on an irregular basis. It is a real QRP station. A free low power pioneer radio station on 6.925 kHz AM. The output power is only 8 watts.....QRP is all about propagation, timing and antenna basics. In comparison to Dutch powerhouses, the operator find it very challenging to reach as far as possible with low power. More information on http://stationqrp.blogspot.be/. A mp3 recording during my observation is on: Station QRP 6925 kHz.mp3.
