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!

KØK in the log!

Jim W4QO as KØK,  was working stations coming at him with savvy and finesse.  I made it into his log at 0234 UTC with a 579 report.  Here's some video of Jim going at it after we made contact. Conditions on 40 Meters was great - low background noise and loud signals!


By the way, you might notice that this video looks a bit cleaner and sharper than ones I've previously posted.  Our old Polaroid digital camera was stolen recently.  Marianne's and my birthday fall within two days of each other, so this year we "gave each other" a new digital camera.  This was taken with a Kodak EasyShare C195 that we purchased on sale at Target.  We're very pleased with it so far.
