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!

CY9M in the log!

On 30 Meters tonight at 00:52 UTC.  Figured out that he was creeping up a few kHz after each station worked. Got in his path, and got in the log!

A good end to a pretty good day!

Larry - you never know who these posts will inspire. I tried working CY9M a couple of times yesterday and gave up... pileup was just too big. Then I saw your post. I came into the shack at 5:30 this morning and worked them first try on 40 meters. An hour later I worked them on 30 meters first try. Thanks for the encouragement! Jim W1PID

Good morning Larry, I too have been trying and maybe I just have to combine strategies get in the shack early and look for a pattern.
