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!

Double wow!

I just watched Wayne Burdick give a presentation of the KX3 courtesy of some streaming Dayton video from Steve G4GXL.

This radio is even more impressive than the still photos could ever convey!

Imagine having a little K3 out in the field with you.  I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get every feature available, but I'm pretty sure I'd be happy with the basic radio and the built in tuner.

As some others have said, Elecraft has hit another home run and has raised the bar, once again!
