QRP ARCI provides a number of awards, each of which encourages low power enthusiasts to accomplish a wide variety of goals. I invite you to review the various awards and to make a commitment toward earning your own special award.
A number of applicants apply for several different awards at the same time, which is fine. I hope you will review your log and determine if you might be eligible for any awards at this time.
Please note that awards are free of charge for active members - another significant benefit of active membership.
Details of the 1000 Miles Per Watt award, distance calculators, GCR forms and application instructions will be added shortly. In the meantime, just send me an email if you need any more information.
