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!

Recommended Reading

Yet another blog post which I highly recommend - even though the link is right down there to the right ..... this is one you should NOT pass over.

This one is by Dan KB6NU and it's titled, "Field Day 2009: Stuart Makes His First Contact"

In all honesty, I cannot say that I have ever read a more encouraging and uplifting post than this one by Dan.

You have to read it for yourself; I don't want to spoil it. But the determination and spunk showed by Stuart truly warms the cockles of this ol' CW veteran's heart. After reading the post, I think Dan might have met someone who truly has "The Knack".

73 de Larry W2LJ - enjoy reading!
