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!

It's a terrible thing

when you are tired as all get out; but cannot sleep! I went to bed and awoke about an hour after turning in. I cannot sleep for some reason. I am too bleary eyed to work on the PFR3A and at this hour not much is happening on the bands. So I came and got on the computer for a bit and went to YouTube and typed in "QRP". It's amazing how many QRP related videos are being posted. This one caught my eye.

This video has to represent the ultimate scenario of just about anybody who's ever operated QRP from the Great Outdoors. The scenery here is just so stunningly beautiful. I can only hope to operate from somewhere as breathtaking as this, someday. Thanks, Leif, for sharing your hike with us.

The lateness of the hour is beginning to catch up with me. I think I just might be able to head back upstairs and catch some ZZZZZZs.

Hi Larry, I hope you get some sleep. Yeah, Norway is a beautiful place to be. And working outside: no city qrm, it must be wonderful. 73, Paul

Paul, I'll bet the Netherlands is beautiful, too. At least from the pictures you post, it looks so. And thanks, I did finally get some sleep. Feeling much less tired this morning.

Looking forward to getting more done on the PFR3A today (AFTER chores, that is!)

love to see this discussion! It’s great to see you all working through the issues and also, it’s great to see recommendations for testing. In the end, it’s what your actual users do and prefer that should be your biggest driver in making these decisions.
