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!

Disappointing so far

The QRP-ARCI Spring QSO Party is today and tomorrow. I've been on for a bit today and so far band conditions seem to be downright horrible.  It seems I have an S5 noise level on just about every band except for 10 Meters, and there's not much in the way of activity.  I've worked three stations so far, including EA2LU on 10 Meters. Jorge is very active in just about all the QRP-ARCI contests.

I sure hope conditions get better as the afternoon draws on and that activity increases.

BTW, Harry K7ZOV commented on the AmateurRadio.com site that the PX3 is expected to ship late June or early July.  That's a lot quicker than I had expected.  My birthday is coming up in less than a month. Maybe I'll treat myself - or maybe not.  Still have to think about this for a while.

Good afternoon Larry, I agree Larry it sure is hard when a birthday comes up.....mine just went past and Julie asked me about a gift. I have not as of yet decided. The the PX3 came out and it is pricey for a birthday gift BUT if I sell my AT-200 ATU, MFJ1026 and the 4SQRP ORPometer in a cool case then maybe the PX3 could be a reality.

I love Elecraft as much as anyone, but if they say June or July, expect it around Thanksgiving or Christmas. :-)
