QRP -- "Shall I decrease power?" "Decrease power."
QRP is both a popular technical and operating challenge. Low power transmitters and transceivers are widely popular construction projects—they can be affordable yet challenging to build. With power efficient modes like CW and PSK31, an skilled operator can work the globe! Many operators have qualified for awards like WAS, WAC, and DXCC, with no more than a QRP rig connected to simple wire antennas.
