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!

If you're a regular reader of this blog ..... I had better NOT have to tell you what it says on that tombstone !!!!

In my last post, I stated that I was going to comment on an article written in December's "WorldRadio" by W3BE about the fact that the "codeless" license is the snake oil of our times. Subsequently, I came across a post on the very same topic by Jeff Davis KE9V is his blog, "Long Delayed Echoes". Jeff is way more eloquent than I could ever hope to be; so I will just link to it here. I agree with his comments.

Tonight's the 80 Meter Foxhunt! Please excuse me while I go get ready to play.
