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!

Hmm, nice drummer! But what I don't like about it, is that he plays the first element of each character on the 'one' of each measure, which automatically gives it emphasis. However, when I hear or send morse, I hear the emphasis on the first dash of the element. I find this much more intuitive.

An example may make things clearer. Let's look at the character F.
The drummer plays: DIT dit dah dit
While I think of F as: dit dit DAH dit

If I could play drums, I would have played those first two dits in the previous measure (I think the English term is: in the upbeat). But, alas, I cannot. So I will keep quiet now :)
