GQRP Club News

Any news, of club or members activity, will go here. Most things are allowed providing it's not waiting to go in Sprat. The reason being that there is no point in reading Sprat if you have read half of it here! Please send all website copy to G4WIF (and Sprat copy to G1TEX)


The Winter 2018 Sprat has not yet been sent to members. Sprat has no publication dates and can appear any time between December and January. More Info......

You may enjoy the Sprat DVD. See here for more info.


Subscription underpayments.

If members underpay we will hold your Sprats until we receive the balance. There will be a message indicating any underpayment on your Spring Sprat label. Once you have sent me (or your DX representative) the missing dues your remaining Sprats (to date) will be despatched. Please do not send me coins in non UK currencies, the bank will not change them. UK coins you send at your own risk. Please do not just paypal the money without contacting me as I will need to advise you of the correct extra charge to cover paypal administration costs. (G4WIF)


Popular antenna book from Ian G3ROO returns and is now available from

Sprat 177 - 12/12/2018 - From G4WIF

Sprat 177The next Issue 177 (Winter 2018) is now being printed.

Panic emails to club officers often suggest that Sprat is late. It is not. It is the Winter issue and Winter is barely started in the UK. Some years the Spring Sprat arrives in December and in other years, later. That's just the way it works out getting a slot in the printer/distributor schedule.

Remember: If your Sprat doesn't eventually arrive - or arrives with pages missing, please contact Tony G4WIF and do not contact other club officers as you will only cause them extra work passing the message back to G4WIF.
