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!

Good Friday

Good Friday is a quiet day at our home. I have the day off; and will spend the day quietly doing chores around the house. Later this afternoon, the kids and I will head off to Church for the 3:00 Veneration of the Cross service. I have been asked to read the first reading, which is from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah.

After the service (or maybe before, if I get the kitchen cleaned) I'll help Joey and Cara color some Easter Eggs.

Since today is a day of quiet prayer and reflection, I probably won't be spending much time, if any, on the radio. However, I was made aware of a really cool Website. It's a little bit wacky; but I think you'll enjoy this Finnish Ham's page entitled "OH6DC - Handmade CW and QRP". In particular, make sure to check out the pages of "Strange CW Keys" and "Homebrew QRP".
