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!

New at Dayton

Posted by the Elecraft folk on the QRP mail lists:

KX3: Ultra-compact K3/KX1 hybrid; 160-6 m, 10/100 W, all-mode, 32-bit   DSP/SDR, 1.5 lbs.

Dimensions: 3.5"H x 7.4"W x 1.7"D -- a bit larger in all dimensions  than a KX1.

(By the way, I'd like to thank everyone on the list who's sent us   suggestions for a next-generation portable over the years. Many great ideas!)


Details will be posted to the Elecraft Website this weekend.

Hey Larry, wish hoisted here with the rest of us at FDIM. I'll try to feed you a pic or two of the new KX3 if I can get anywhere near the Elecraft booth. Not much chance of that, the new KX3 is all everyone is buzzing about here.

Light rain mixed with some sun and mid 60s. Hoping it moves out by morning or Hara will be a muddy slog.
