On May 7, 2016 the NJQRP website moved to a new web server and a new URL:
Sincere thanks to George N2APB for hosting njqrp.org for nearly two decades and to Vince WA2ECP for developing and maintaining the original website.
All the great NJQRP content has been moved to this new server. Our intent is to continue to maintain this QRP resource for years to come.
The monthly TeamSpeak "Chat with the Designers" sessions happen on the second Tuesday of each month at 8 PM Eastern (0000z Wed). You can join us live or catch up with previous sessions at any time with the podcasts and "whiteboard discussion material" (web pages) posted there for nearly all of the previous 70 episodes! Our TeamSpeak Session Home Page has instructions for loading the (free) Teamspeak audio conferencing client on your Windows, Mac or Android platform!

We had a great group build "Workshop" on Dec 11, 2011 at the Armstrong Hall Engineering Lab at the College of New Jersey. Great thanks to Professor Al Katz (the famous UHF ham) who let us use the engineering lab to continue the build-up of our Ensemble RX-II kits. A big thanks also to Joe Jesson, KC2VGL for arranging this venue, which could become a regular place for the continued stream of Group Build activities that we have planned for the club. The Ensemble RX II is an all-HF band receiver kit that includes the components for building the receiver for HF operation (1.8 MHz through 30 MHz). We're looking forward to getting this compact little receiver working first with the PC, and then shortly thereafter with a small project board (our follow-on group build) to eliminate the need for the PC. "We don't need no stinkin' PC!
We have collected some great sources of information and posted them in a web page called "NJQRP Resources", check it out at http://www.njqrp.club/resources/index.php.
After 10 years of faithful service (thanks to Bob, K2UT) we have retired our old email list server and moved to a Yahoo! Group. This group continues to let us share email with everyone as well as adding many new features. The old mail list server was retired at the end of 2007. Click the image on the left or see this page for instructions on signing up for our Yahoo! group.

John McDonough, WB8RCR has designed an on line introductory course for learning how to program and use PIC micro controllers. As course instructor, he will start off with very basic principles, and take students to the point of designing their own PIC applications. While the focus will be on the PIC16F84 chip, principles are applicable to the entire range of micro controllers from Microchip.
