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!

Prayer Request

I saw on the Flying Pigs e-mail reflector that Brain Murrey KB9BVN, a very good friend and brother Flying Pig is in the hospital undergoing some tests and possible open heart surgery.

Brian can only be described as a "salt of the earth" kinda guy. He's a great Ham and his enthusiasm for the hobby in general and QRP in particular is infectious.

He's also put in a good many years as a troop leader for the Boy Scouts, molding young minds with the ideals of good citizenship.

So without getting all syrupy, I'd like to ask all of you who read this blog on a regular basis, if you would, before you go to sleep tonight, offer up a small prayer for Brian's continued health and safety.

He's one of the good ones.

Thank you!
