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!

Zombie Standstill

 W2LJ without his makeup on.

This Zombie didn't do much shuffling tonight.  Band conditions were pretty poor.  It's almost 11:00 PM local time and I've only bagged six Zombies.  And just about each QSO was like pulling teeth.  Heavy QRN and QSB on 80 Meters - heavy SSB QRM on 40 Meters.

I ended up pulling the plug at 11:30 PM local time; after a "micro-run" on 80 Meters yielded three more QSOs for a total of nine Zombies worked.  Nothing to brag about; but still fun!
