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!

Right now, it's 17:40 UTC and I am not hearing too much activity in the QRP-ARCI Spring QSO Party. I've worked WA8ZBT on 20 Meters and EA2LU on 15 Meters.  I'm hearing lots going on in the Polish contest; but not many calling "CQ QRP".

Maybe it will pick up later in the afternoon - people are busy on the weekends.

Got the April 2011 edition of CQ in the mail today.  I see that there's a nice photo of Jim W1PID in the field, paying close attention to his rig and tuner.  Nice to see friends make the magazines.

Hi Larry, I worked EA2LU with 2 watt CW on 20 meter. I don't hear much ARCI because of SP CW contest in Europe. I did hear W1SOC on 20 m this afternoon but could not work him. 73 Paul
