A lot of good QRP info here!

This appeared on the QRP-L e-mail reflector today, courtesy of the owner of the QRP-L:

"Hi Guys,

Since there some reading this that may have some extra time during the holiday season I thought I would pass along some information you may or may not know about.

Just in time for your QRP overload season. I get sort of tickle with all the QRP-Lwhatever lists out there, when there are other lists doing great job and have been around for years. If you haven't already, please give them a try! Here are just a few lists to try out.

First off is the 4SQRP list. http://www.4sqrp.com/reflector.php 
The next up is the GQRP list. http://www.gqrp.com/list.htm 
Then there is the Flying Pigs International http://www.fpqrp.org/fpqrp-l.htm

These are just super nice guys that are fun to be around!  The above are direct links for signing up to their reflectors, here are the direct links for the group's web sites in general.

4SQRP http://www.4sqrp.com/index.php
GQRP http://www.gqrp.com/
Flying Pigs http://www.fpqrp.org/

Here are some other clubs that also come to mind.  If you live near these clubs/groups please go check them out in person. They also may have their own reflectors and QRP bulletins.

NOGA http://www.nogaqrp.org/
Norcal http://norcalqrp.org/
St Louis QRP http://slqs.net/about
Michigan QRP http://miqrp.org/
NJQRP http://njqrp.org/
MW Homebrewers http://hbqrp.org/
Arizona Scorpion QRP http://www.azscqrpions.com/index.html
Texas QRP clubs (too many to list, hi) http://www.kk5na.com/texasqrpclubs.htm
New England QRP http://newenglandqrp.org/

This is by no means the end all of QRP lists or clubs. I am sure there are many I have overlooked!  I was mainly trying to focus on other QRP lists that also may have a QRP news bulletin or magazine.   However as I wrote this. I kept expanding on what I had above.   All the above are just a great bunch of clubs/groups, each have their own flavor on the QRP side of the hobby. So enjoy all the surfing and reading through out the holiday season, as well the New Year coming up! If you have a favorite QRP group/club that I missed, please list their information here on QRP-L. Bragging on them is not only welcome, but encouraged!

73 and Happy Holidays!"

I have no idea who the current "owner" of QRP-L is, as that ownership has changed several times in the years since I have been a subscriber.  For the most part, it is a thankless job, by a person who, at times, has to deal with a lot of grousing.  Thank you to the owner of QRP-L for your thoughtfulness and a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too, Sir (or Madam)!
