"It is not often that we get a new operating code in Amateur Radio, and to the best of my knowledge there has never before been one introduced specifically for QRP operators. Some months ago Chairman of the U-QRP Club Oleg Borodin RV3GM suggested that QRP operators adopt the new code "72", meaning "Wishing you Good QRP:"
