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!

Looks like I am there.

One K1 and two out of three bugs sold on eBay tonight. So ........ tentatively I am where I need to be and I can place an order for a KX3 and possibly the autotuner as soon as Elecraft starts taking orders.


This has been and will continue to be an interesting journey to say the least.

Thats great to hear Larry and there are lots out there waiting for the bell to ring and place their orders. As for me I have decided as you know to stick with the K2 and spruce it up. As for my Christmas toy looks like it is going to be the Elecraft P3.

Hello Larry,

I was also torn between two "lovers" and decided in the moment against the KX3. Have a look:

You will find also follow up articles to the SOLF in the table of contents.

Congratulations, Larry. That sure looks like a nice rig! Lord willing we'll chat on the air sometime after you get it.
