NorCalQRP lives again! A number of years ago, this group sold several kits and published a newsletter called "QRPp". The original website is still found at http://www.norcalqrp.org/ and you can download the groups old "QRPp" newsletters from http://www.ncqrpp.org/ . As you can see, this interesting newsletter existed from 1993 until it ceased publication in 2003.
Recently, the NorCal club has begun holding monthly meetings again (in San Jose, California), and Doug Hendricks KI6DS has taken on publishing "QRPp, Journal of the NorCal QRP Club". The latest issue for August 2016 (Volume 12 Issue 1), and future issues can be downloaded from the "FILES" section of the NorCalQRP Yahoo Group found at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/norcalqrp/info . Just join the group to have access to upcoming issues of this great newsletter.
