For over 30 years, I have enjoyed QRP, CW, homebrewing,
kit building and portable operations in the great outdoors. I hope this Website
will share a bit of that enthusiasm with you; and perhaps impart upon you
some new ideas or information for your own use.

Current Project - This is where I share whatever it is I happen to be currently working on.  I have added a pictorial history of HF rigs I have owned.
Station W2LJ - Deep in the basement of the Makoski household is "the shack". This is where I play radio and build whatever it is that I am building.  

Portable QRP Ops  - This page contains a description of my CW QRP portable set. Also some stuff on the PAC-12 antenna system and the NorCal Doublet.

Morse Code - A page dedicated to the mode I love.  A little bit about my experiences with CW and a little bit about prosigns and how to adjust a Bug.
N2CQ's QRP Contest Calendar - This page is devioted to Ken Newman's listing of the latest QRP contests for all you competetive folks out there.

Operating. - This page will feature some of the newest and best information about real life QRP operating.  Also, you'll find the answer to "Does QRP really work?"

          Learning the Code - A page with helpful hints, tips and resources for                           anyonewho is contemplating learning Morse Code.   Also, tips on making                    that 1st QSO!

        Personally Speaking - A bit about my Ham career; and a chance for me to                  get on my soapbox! Plus some samples of my QSL card designs                                 throughout the years

Since October 2004.

I would like to dedicate this Website to the memory of four Silent Keys:
George Miller K2FD, Julius Kardos WV2O and Chuck Phillips WB2MSV, and Charlie Laterra  N2LHD.
These four gentlemen embodied the finest qualities to be found in Amateur Radio operators.
They were a credit to our hobby; and I am honored and proud to have
been able to call them my friends.
