What does
QRP mean?


If you came across this site and are not familiar with QRP, it is a "Q" signal used in radio communication since the early days of morse code.

Generally, it means "low power" and has come to represent transmissions using 5 watts or less. (about the same power as a conventional 'nite lite')

A list of commonly used "Q" Signals may be found at:
