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!

Solar Weather

It appears that ol' Sol is having a bit of a conniption today.

According to SpaceWeather.com, there is a nest of unstable magnetic fields near the Sun's northeastern horizon. The central area of this activity does have a dark core; but has not been officially declared a sunspot just yet. C-class flares are emanating from the area. There is aurora alert for the higher latitudes for tomorrow.

Maybe things are starting to heat up again? Sorry, but that pun WAS intended!
