    We at QRZ want to thank every person who participated in the sweepstakes and watched our live broadcasted prize giveaways as well as everyone who uses the site on a regular basis. We also want to thank our incredibly generous sponsors in this contest. We'd like to give a shoutout to our QRZ volunteers who work countless hours to help make the site a fun and inviting place to spend time. We couldn't do what we do without them.

    Over the past 2 months we've given out a number of great prizes but last night we gave away the Grand Prizes in the 25th Anniversary Sweepstakes. Here is a list of the winners who were announced on December 5th along with a list of those who were chosen from among the live viewers of our broadcast:

    During last night's live broadcast we also gave away some prizes to those folks who tuned in online. Our plan was to ask some trivia questions and give the prizes to the first to answer each question, but there were so many of you in the chat room (over 900 people) that the screen was difficult for our MCs to decipher. For that reason, the following prizes were awarded at random from the crowd:

    DX Engineering Swag Packages were won by:

    Steven Gehring, NL7W, KE9OL, Ted Kleeman, Mark Steele, KD2NOM, Richard Subers, KD2OXT, Randall Rueff, K9RMR

    ARRL Gift Certificates
    will be awarded to:

    Russell Blanchette, KB1GKN, Chad Eagle, K0WVM, Glen Brooks, WM3T, Shannon Davis, K5SMD, James Dallas, AD5NL, and Zar Gon, AD8AB

    An LED Lantern from Wired Communications will be shipped to:
    Larry Ward, W7GST

    And last but not least, A coax set, power panel and AMP meter from Wired Communications were won by:
    Eric Lessard, N1RCX

    We want to thank all of you who use and use QRZ every day for your loyalty over the last 25 years. Our commitment to you is that we will continue to innovate and create new resources for the Amateur radio community. We're humbled by your support.

    And a big thank you again to our sponsors in the trivia challenge and to Gordon West, WB6NOA his wife Suzy, N6GLF and the members of the Arizona ARRL who came out to support us in our efforts this week.
