Club Sales

 

Please Read First

GQRP is not a business but a club run by unpaid volunteers. You will find on this page contact details, email/postal, and in some case telephone numbers. Please remember that we have our own family lives, and although we endeavour to deal with your enquiry without undue delay, you should not expect an immediate response. If you telephone and do not get a reply we may be out or indeed on holiday. Please also note that a good many items on this page are reserved for fully paid up members only.

The GQRP Club has available three kits.

The GQRP Limerick Sudden Receiver, the Limerick Sudden Transmitter Kit, and now the matching Limerick Sudden ATU
and Sudden Digital VFO. This latter item is just the PCB and not a kit.

To read more please click the appropriate item above.

Spectrum coils.

We now stock these coils which are the replacements for some of the popular 10mm 10K TOKO range. Please look at the component list below for the range we hold in stock. We also have a datasheet.

 

SPRAT DVD (and Sprat-on-a-stick)

This is the 8th generation of Sprat DVD which uses standards based html and has been produced in-house. It should work on all computers which have a web browser. It uses either Adobe Acrobat (which is not included but can be downloaded for free from here), or any compatible pdf reader such as Foxit Reader.

 

 

QRP StickThis data is now available on a memory stick as "Sprat-on-a-stick" and has exactly the same data as the DVD, but is intended for those who no longer have a DVD drive on their computer. Again, this is the latest version covering issues 1 - 184. We suggest that you copy the entire memory stick contents to your hard drive, and then make a shortcut to the "index.htm" file. For the moment, we are restricting sales of this item to members only.

Price for both versions is the same - members £5 (6.5 Euro, USA $8.0, AU$9.5, and NZ$10.5) Non-members £14 (for the DVD only). But please check first with G3MFJ (email Graham), as we often have deals whereby we offer a new membership plus the DVD (or the Sprat-on-a-stick) cheaper than the normal prices. Plus postage - £1.20 (UK), £3.50 (EU), £5.00 (DX)


Online Ordering: You can order the Sprat DVD (or the stick) using Paypal. Whatever country you live in you must pay online in UK Pounds. The currency conversion will appear on your credit card bill at the exchange rate at the time of purchase.

Overseas purchasers, you can use PayPal to order the Sprat DVD, but only if purchased directly from the U.K. Our DX reps do not offer Paypal so please do not request this method of Payment. 

Some DX reps may have stocks of the DVD, but payment to them should be by cheque or cash (see below).

Members from Belgium, Spain & The Netherlands please note. Our EU reps Jos, Jon and Henk are able to take DVD orders for the price of 11 Euro which includes postage from UK club sales.
Please contact our reps direct, but please note this price and service is only available if you are a member of GQRP club. You can join at the same time as ordering.

If you are attempting to use an older CD on 64 bit windows, then see this note which may help if you are having problems. This latest DVD, however, has a 64 bit loader and should have no problems - depending on your security settings. If that turns out to be an issue then browse to the "index.htm" file on the DVD and run that.

Members who use Macs may find with earlier generations of the DVD, that they are unable to open Sprat #153. They will get a file not found error. The solution is to copy the entire contents onto their hard drive and run it from there having renamed the file "Sprat153.pdf" to "sprat153.pdf". Macs are case sensitive (as are Linux PC's) This problem has been resolved on the latest version (v7)

On the DVD FAQ page the datasheet referred to is missing from the DVD. That datasheet is here.

Back issues of SPRAT.
Graham has very few back issues now as they were taking over the store, and as folks were requesting back issues less & less & less, something had to give. He now only keeps, in any quantity, back issues that are later than those that are on the DVD, (currently 185 or later.)
So, if you want an issue earlier than 185, then you should check by e-mail before ordering!
Postage:-
UK : 1st magazine - 70p + 60p each extra magazine,
EU : 1st magazine - £2.20 + £1.20 each extra magazine,
DX : 1st magazine - £3.30 + £1.50 each extra magazine.
(Again, sorry about the huge postal charges - posting magazines is not cheap!) If you want more than 2 or 3 magazines, then you can ask for an exact postage figure.

(US$1.25) each

How to Order.

We accept Bank Transfer (BACS), cheques, cash or PayPal (in order of preference).

For BACS, the numbers you need are 01-07-44 and 54738210 - The GQRP Club. You may also need to know that it is our No2 account and that we use the Rochdale branch.
Although our account is a club account, it is actually a business account and you may need to know
this if you are doing a bank transfer.
International bank transfers also work. The codes you will need for this are:
IBAN: GB 78 NWBK 010 744 547 382 10 : BIC: NWBKGB2L : G-QRP Club No2 account, Rochdale

Payments can also be made by cheques or cash. Cheques must be made payable to "GQRP Club".

paypal We also accept Paypal - please see our page explaining how.

Minimum order value for cheques and Paypal is £5, however, you can pay by PayPal for smaller amounts but you MUST select the "Friends/Family/Gift" option when paying, as this will mean that they will send us the full amount and not deduct any charge. This also works for larger amounts and helps the club a little. If you have a smaller order, then we accept cash, postage stamps or postal orders by post if you prefer this method.

Please note that due to problems with credit cards they are no longer accepted as a direct payment. We can only accept payments with credit cards via Paypal.

If you are not sure about the postage, or whether the items you want are in stock, you may email Graham first - see below.

Cash payments can be made in GB pounds, or US$ bills, or Euro notes only and should be sent to Graham securely. Remember that you do this at your own risk.

Orders may be sent in more than 1 package to keep within postal limits. UK members are asked to pay up to £5 with postage stamps (1st or 2nd class), postal orders (uncrossed), or UK banknotes (please send securely). This cuts down on our bank charges!


You can check stock availability by calling Graham on (+44) (0)113 267 1070, but if he is not there, then you will have to call back. (Please do not expect Graham's family to be able to take orders or even discuss club sales business!). or email Graham
