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!

20 Meters is long tonight!

I managed to snare one of the 20 Meter Foxes tonight - Dale WC7S who lives in Wyoming. I can't hear a peep out of John K4BAI; and I suspect there is no propagation tonight between NJ and GA. We are probably too close!

20 Meters seems to be long tonight. I am hearing and working a few stations in the NAQCC Sprint while hoping against hope that I will eventually hear John. I have worked Manitoba and Nebraska and have heard California quite clearly.

No K4BAI, though. And I've got the AGC off and it's playing havoc with my eardrums!
