10th Anniversary Giveaway!

On April 30th, it will be ten years since the "W2LJ - QRP - Do More With Less" blog was born.

In appreciation for all who read this blog, I am going to give something away to one lucky reader. I have a new, mint condition, unused, complete sheet of fifty United States Amateur Radio stamps, issued in 1964 on the 50th Anniversary of the ARRL - Scott #1260. I am going to have the sheet matted and framed - ready for display on some deserving shack wall. All I ask is that you send an e-mail to w2lj@arrl.net - entitled "Blog Anniversary Giveaway". Include your name, call sign and mailing address.

Any Amateur Radio op worldwide can enter. I will package and ship the framed stamps to any destination that the United States Post Office will accept.

The names and call signs will be loaded into a software program such as RandomPicker on April 30th and a winner will be determined. The winner will be announced here, and then the framed stamps will be posted.

Good luck, and thank you for reading!

January Run For The Bacon results

The Run For The Bacon for 2008 has started off with a bang!

We had 24 participants; and certificates have been e-mailed to our top three finishers, who are:

George KX0R in First Place
Kent W9NX in Second Place
John K4BAI in Third Place

Rounding out those who used the autolog (in order of finish) were:

I'm looking forward to the February RFTB. There will be a prize given away to the top finisher! Anyone is invited to participate; but to qualify for the prize, the winner will have to operate at QRP power levels and be a "paid in full" member of the Flying Pigs QRP Club International.

I used the " " because there are no dues! But you do have to join and have a valid FP number to be eligible to win a prize.
