Great idea!

I try very hard not to needlessly duplicate the offerings of my fellow bloggers. However, I caught Chris KQ2RP’s post and felt that it needed amplification (pun intended).

Rex Harper W1REX, member of the QRP Hall of Fame and primary owner/operator of QRPme has come up with a great idea – the “QRP Kit of the Month Club”.

This is such a cool idea!  Personally, I think it’s one of the best unexpected gifts a QRPer could find himself being on the receiving end of. Wow – bad sentence, but you know what I mean.  🙂

I’d much rather receive a QRP kit every month rather than a piece of fruit, or a cheese ball, or a beef log, or a jar of jam or jelly.  You can opt into different subscription plans; but for the full boat of 12 months, it works out to 12 kits at $15 a clip – not bad at all.  I know that sounds like a lot, but it really isn’t when you think of how it breaks down.

Kudos to Rex for coming up with an innovative idea!  It will be interesting to see if any QRPers are gifted this way.  I may have to start leaving some obvious hints myself, starting this coming October and November.

    Every signal can use a repeater now & then Larry… 😉 I hesitated at beef log, but the rest of the list is no contest.
