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!

K6JSS/0

K6JSS is in Iowa this week.  I tried working Terry WA0ITP both last night and tonight; but so far - no joy.  Terry's been plenty loud - 339 to 449.  Not booming in but loud enough for a basic QSO.

The problem, once again, is me.  I don't seem to be making it to the other end.  Sometimes, I fall into that trap that because I can hear a station I want to work, I assume they can hear me also.

This may end up being another case where I'm too close for 20 Meters; but too far for 40 Meters.  30 Meters might end up being the proper band.  Problem is, I don't get to choose the band!

Keeping my fingers crossed!
