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!

Bah ..... humbug!

I've got some kind of S9 background noise on 20 Meters. Not the kind of conditions I was hoping for, for the QRP-ARCI Fall QSO Party. I finally took a small break from house chores to slip downstairs and turn on the radio for a few minutes.

To say I am disappointed is an understatement!

I did work Bob, N4BP - but I can't hear anyone else (if anyone else is out there!). Maybe things will improve for later tonight. (Fingers are crossed).
