Hi Laurent,

I understand that in Continental Europe QRP Dxing from summits is popular using the PMR type 500mW UHF licence free handhelds (PMR446 in the U.K.). I have heard that they have made contacts in excess of 100km using these. To keep within the spirit of the sport (and the law!) they must not be modified, and some enterprising individuals have actually fitted the sets as the driven element in Yagi beams to extend the range. It makes you wonder what could be done with a similar arrangement using 70cm which is also available on some of the licence free handhelds (Telcom etc) !!

Laurent why not have vhf/uhf on
your qrp challenge, as others can do qrp on these modes/frequencies, is the challenge just open to French stations making the qso’s or anywhere in the world. as you haven’t said,
