Amateur Radio

Thank you for visiting the KR2F amateur radio page.
My name is Vin Cortina and I have been an Extra Class
(20W.P.M.) licensee since November of 1998.
I previously held the call N2AJZ from when I was first licensed in
1978. I am primarily a CW QRP operator.

QRZ callsign lookup:


I typically operate QRP (under 5 watt transmitter output) operation.
There are many websites devoted to this topic. Here are just a few sites you may like to visit to look into QRP.
Just click on the appropriate link.
