Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont QRP Club

November 2021

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Bill Macfarlane


I'm thinking of bringing a 40 meter QRP transceiver, earbuds, 3D printed CW keyan end feed wire  antenna and oh yeah a 9 volt battery to work the world in the back country. (The setup weighs in at under a pound!) Well, this is my concept slide for all who choose to run a QRP CW rig on the trail. (BTW the Morse code on the slide reads CQ CQ DE PHILMONT)

Carved from Southern (pallet) pine, it's the basic Philmont arrowhead painted with hobby paints. With some work with Microsoft Paint and some clipart, I had the images to print on waterslide paper. The slide is sealed with a couple of coats of poly.
