Each, who has tried racing with QRP will certainly confirm, that it requires much more patience, experience and a different approach compared to QRO. Most connections are Search-and-pounce, it is only possible to go to the challenge with a very good antenna and from an excellent QTH.
Competition in QRP thus brings a different dimension and a much greater challenge. That is also why the CQ.sk portal organizes a QRP low power race at VKV every year in August. In parallel, other races take place on the band, so there is no shortage of stations. Weather permitting, so it is possible with QRP equipment to undertake ascents even to excellent elevations, which are occupied during other races. How did the competitors do on August 7 2017?
