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!

Staying up with the owls


Tomorrow (Sunday) night is what I consider to be the kick off to the Summer QRP contesting season.

It's also one of my favorites, the QRP-ARCI Hoot Owl Sprint. This one runs on your local time - 8:00 PM until Midnight, wherever you happen to live.

For details: http://www.qrparci.org/content/view/1518/118/

Happy Hunting and hope to hear you on the bands - although I see we're heading into a period of geomagnetic disturbance. With any luck, we'll have some decent propagation and some fun.
