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!

Almost lost in the sauce

with all the excitement about the official launch of the KX3, this hasn't been getting much talk up on the QRP e-mail reflectors.  Doug Hendricks has announced the return of the TwoFer Plus CW Transmitter Kit.

"I have returned the TwoFer Transmitter Kit to my line up of kits at Hendricks QRP Kits. It is in stock and ready to ship for your choice of 40, 30, or 20 meters now, and when the crystals arrive in about 2 weeks, it will be available on 10 meters as well. The cost of the kit is $35 plus shipping and handling, and now includes an open chassis case, knob, and all connectors. This kit is ideal for use as a small beacon with the addition of a keyer, and is a great first time build for the beginner. The kit was retired several years ago, but I decided to bring it back after many requests for it. Ken Locasale, WA4MNT, designed a case for it, and we changed the final to a 2N3053. Check out the pictures and manual on my web page at www.qrpkits.com. Just click on the picture and scroll down to the manual and ordering information. 72, Doug, KI6DS"

Always good to have reasonably priced kits that you can recommend to first time kit builders! Thanks, Doug!
