The idea of creation of a QRP-club has arisen in
1986, and it belongs to Andrey Fomenko,
UA3EAC. The first list of the members of the U-QRP- C was consisted
of two tens calls, most of them were close friends of UA3EAC. At the
times Andrey, UA3EAC, has offered to use the code "72".
Primary the code had meaning "For friendship on the amateurs
bands”. However the circumstances
have developed so, that above the members list the U- QRP- C
did nothing. But… it is not blame of Andrey. In 1986 USSRs’
ham may lose ham licence and go to
jail due membership in a foreign amateur club or due creation
of illegal organization (yes, at the times U- QRP- C was illegal
Note I.G.: It is obvious that Andrey strike
with something like that…. At the times in life of the USSR the influence of Andropov (who was chief
KGB from 1967- till 1982, and who ruled of the USSR in 1982- 1984) was great.

at the times!) to Andrey and another members of the U- QRP- C.
