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!

An answer to a question

came today in the mail. You may remember me wondering if Paul W0RW was pedestrian mobile when I worked him during FYBO. He was! I got a photo QSL card in the mail confirming the fact.

Paul was at Pikes Peak and was using his PRC319 military portable radio with a 10 foot whip at 5 Watts. He gave me a 599 report (handwritten).

In the photo he was quite bundled up and the snow cover in the foreground looks pretty deep. I will try and hook up the scanner to the shack laptop later to see if I can possibly scan the card and post it here.

There! I managed to scan it in. Thanks for the card, Paul!
