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 job, QRP ARCI !!!!

Watching the QRP banquet, I was able to see who got inducted into QRP Hall of Fame this year. Most deserving is Jim Stafford W4QO. I've spoken of Jim before and the honor is "a natural".

The second inductee is most unfortunately, a posthumous entry. I wish Dave Ingram K4TWJ could have been up there to receive the award in person. He will be sorely missed by the QRP community for his infectious enthusiasm.

The third inductee is Rex Harper W1REX. He was a very good friend of K4TWJ, and could best be described as his protege. Rex has that same infectious enthusiasm, is a boon to QRP and is a very deserving inductee!
