Word has been going around in radio artisan blogademia that the lets-move-the-QRP-calling-frequency movement is afoot, yet again, apparently on QRP-L. I checked the QRP-L reflector and didn't see anything about it. Hmmm. Must be on that other QRP-L....let me check. What? They want me to subscribe in order to read the archive? No, I don't think so.

I don't know how much more can be said about moving the QRP calling frequency. RTTY interference. Check. Rock bound rigs. Check. Region 1 versus Region 2 bandplans. Check. 7040 on a gazillion website lists and stone tablets. Check.

What are we waiting for? A QRP elder to give their blessing? Hiram to appear and make known his wishes? A Rockmite retrofit kit?
