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 Four States Kit

The Four State QRP Group is pleased to announce the HI-Per-Mite, a high performance audio CW filter. This is a small, inexpensive, but high performance design.

A link to the ordering and information page is on the Four State home page, http://www.4sqrp.com/  Hover over the picture or click the red "Shop Four States QRP Kits" button on the left. Paypal, cash, checks, or money orders are accepted.

Designed by David Cripe NMØS, it features a 200 cycle bandwidth with NO RINGING! It can be used as an external stand-alone unit, and has an on board audio amp for driving a speaker or headphones. It also can be built into a receiver without using the audio amp, or with it if you need the audio stage. This is a very useful accessory for direct conversion receivers or any rig needing additional selectivity. It provides outstanding selectivity and comfortable listening while using earbuds, headphones, or a speaker.

As always, all proceeds go toward funding OzarkCon. Thank you for supporting the Four State QRP Group.
