New Site Name – w4mkh-qrp.com

After much consideration I decided to change the name of the site to (1) reflect my call sign as well as my emphasis on QRP and (2) avoid any confusion with a certain purveyor of excellent QRP kits.

The new name also ties in nicely with the matching Twitter and Buy me a Coffee accounts as well as the future Youtube channel.

The old links to QRPguy will still work for short while but please change your links to the new link w4mkh-qrp.com

If you build it they will come

I’m reminded of that line from Field of Dreams – “If you build it they will come“. I believe that line was from Shoeless Joe Jackson (played by Ray Liotta) but I’m not sure.

It doesn’t matter who said it. I still feel like Kevin Costner did in the movie. I have a love for Amateur Radio and QRP field work especially. I have built QRPguy and now I have to see if anyone will come. So far I have been working on the look and feel along with the feature set for QRPguy.net. I have been fine tuning my radio setups, antennas and adding images to my gallery for use on the site. I am still adding features but I am also ready to add content and word is slowly getting around that the site exists. Encouraging? Yes, but I’m still nervous.

I am creating a community here and I hope to see it grow to become one of the best places on the Internet to obtain information about QRP operating. I’ve already gotten some positive emails from people about what is happening. I thought there was a need for something like this and hopefully I am right. Now if everyone will just participate I will be able to relax and sleep at night again.

If you have any suggestions for content or things you would like to see then please email them to marshall@gotspeech.net.

In the meantime, I’ll be setting here nervously waiting to see if they will come.
