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!

It's been two good days

not at work (sigh); but at least at the mailbox!  Last night I came home to find my Four States Hamcan transceiver in the mail.  Today, I found QRP Quarterly and CQ magazine in the box today.

The Hamcan is going to be a super easy build - only 26 parts.  This will most likely be a one evening kit.  This little gem is even featured on page 62 of May CQ. I am looking forward to getting it built and going this weekend, which should be my first opportunity to work on it.

CQ and QRP Quarterly are always good finds in the mailbox.  CQ seems to have a goodly amount of QRP and homebrewing articles this month.  QRP Quarterly is always a gem and there's a nice article in this issue about WB9LPU's Bugnapper, which I featured prominently on this blog.
