You may (in fact, are encouraged) to work members multiple times even though only the first contact in 2013 will count.. Numbers exchanged during QRP ARCI contests will of course count toward your totals.. You'll also be asked for the name of your favorite local, regional, or international QRP club (if you have one) and special recognition will go to those clubs who turn out the greatest number of members playing..

One of the challenges with QRP is to take advantage of band openings to make your signal heard.. Understanding the science behind propagation will allow an operator to use the right band at the right time.. We are starting this section with a classic article from Paul Harden, NA5N.. SpaceWeather.. The SpaceWeather  ...   is featured heavily and there is news about auroras and meteor showers.. For an up to date view of what is happening visit.. www.. spaceweather.. Solar Activity HF Propagation.. Paul Harden NA5N is well known in QRP circles.. At FDIM (Four Days In May) 2005 he made a presentation on Solar Activity and HF Propagation which has become a classic.. To understand more about the the effects of solar activity on HF propagation download his article -.. here..
