Hi Charlie,
Once upon a time I owned an Icom 6m QRP Rig it was an IC 502 from memory, Whatever model it was  put out about 3 watts SSB and I had a lot of fun working DX into Japan and Aust with it. In those days I had a pair of 5 element 6m Yagis in use as they were plentiful in the area being ex TV. Sometime later I did add a homebrew Valve linear (Always an option)  I still continued to contact the same areas but with an improved signal their end which just added to the pileups.
It may be a while before DX opens again on 6m but when it does you will experience pileups like no other. My 6m activities were in the 1970's/80's I guess. Good Luck with the project

Thanks Wayne. I'll build the Go QRP rig first, then revisit 6m.

 Others may have better info Charlie, but I've not heard of any regular use of 6M for QRP. Give it a whirl - You never know what might pop up! Cheers

Good morning all. I'm just thinking about ideas for a new homebrew project and was thinking about a 6m QRP rig. Do people think 6m is very active in New Zealand?

This is my first post to this group so I am writing this as a test more than anything at the moment.

My most recent work has been to design a small ( getting bigger daily ) SSB rig for 80M with an
option of a multiband frontend / backend facility.

I have at this stage, built the DDS stages and have a receiver section running using a SA602 frontend, I do
however need to do some aerial work as my existing 80M dipole is only some 2 to 3 meters above ground.

At some stage in the near ( or far, with me ) future, I plan to do some work with a Mag loop.

Take care

Regards ..... Peter  ZL2BAU
