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!

Interesting evening

I've been listening on and off to the QRP Foxhunt on 20 Meters tonight. I can only hear one of the Foxes, and that's Dale WC7S in Wyoming. He's at ESP levels most of the time and when he gets REALLY loud, he's all of about 229! Looks like a double skunk pelt for W2LJ tonight!

I've also been tabulating the results for Flight of the Bumblebees. I am working on a spreadsheet and so far I have tabulated about a third of the e-mail logs that I have received. I received 86 logs; so if you haven't gotten yours in yet, there's still time - although we're cutting it close! I hope to have everything figured out and published for Monday.

While final results aren't done - I have posted some comments that I received that included photographs.

This has been an experience!  I never dealt with editing a wiki before; but it's really almost like doing this blog.  A bit more basic as I've had to learn the format and stuff; but it's always nice to gain experience with something new!

So ........... as a reminder ......... if you have a FOBB log with or without pictures, I'll accept them until Midnight Friday night / Saturday morning.  I'd love to hit 100 logs sent in!

Very good job on the Wiki page was there for some time checking out the pictures and the roster of Bee's.
