I bet you're wondering what the heck does " Boschveldt" mean?
Well, it's a very old word meaning wilderness. Yes that's what we do, go into the wilderness and operate our QRP radios.
Here's the cool thing about this club - no dues, numbers or contests - ever!
We just want to have fun operating our QRP ham radios in the wilderness or back country.
This club is for the active QRP ham radio operator who hikes, rides etc in to the wilderness or country, operates his or her QRP radio or is active in club activities.
Please email portable wilderness articles and pictures for our article and picture pages. Your articles may be an operation, gear or new products.
