QRP Party

The QRP Party is an event that has been organized by the HTC for many years. Homebrewing of small devices (typically QRP) is established as one of our goals and is the second pillar of our club. Increasingly this event is conducted in cooperation with other organizations and groups. All radio amateurs, and not just HTC members, are welcome to attend the QRP Party.

 

 2015: the 20th QRP Party

On November 21, 2015, together with the HSR Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil (a member of the University of Applied Sciences of Eastern Switzerland), we held the traditional QRP Party for the 20th time. The event was conducted in the conventional way with technical presentations, demonstrations and the time-proven mini presentations Program 
 
A summary of past events presented at the 20th HTC QRP Party (in German with photos)  took us once again into the past for a few moments. We were able to benefit from the excellent infrastructure provided by the HSR and the facility's fantastic location directly on Lake Zurich. More than 80 people attended the 20th QRP Party!
 
Not an empty seat. Detailed discussions during the wine and cheese reception. Lunch at the Rathaus restaurant.
Symbolic of all the presentations: here the mcHF SDR from Peter HB9TVK.
 
Thank you very much for coming to our event! The Organizing Committee: HSR - ICOM and the HTC (HB9AFH)

2014 QRP Party

On Saturday, March 1, 8 and 22, 2014, the MA-12 Meeting took place in Uster. During this period, the participants worked on the MAS (Minimal Art Session) transceiver, which consists of fewer than 100 components. We discussed the circuits, exchanged tips and tricks, and then completed rigs were troubleshooted and aligned. This meeting represents an "active QRP Party" in 2014.  Building something during the QRP Party itself is an experiment that always involves some risk, but the feedback and results of the 20 participants was overwhelmingly positive! Thanks to the USKA/HTC NMD Commission and the IG UEM (HAMFU telecommunications museum) that so kindly allowed the use of its facilities.
