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!

You can tell it's Dayton weekend

It is amazing to see the dwindled amount of posts to the QRP reflectors. I guess the most prolific posters are busy this weekend at Dayton.

I missed the Elecraft presentation tonight; as I was watching "D2: The Mighty Ducks" on the Hallmark Channel with my son. He got a kick out of watching kids play ice hockey.

I suppose that after the hoopla is over; and when everyone is safe and sound back home, we will inevitably see some Dayton reports pop up on the QRP reflectors. They will be interesting to read. If the Webcasts that I have watched are any indication, then everyone is having a superb time. Even though I have never had the good fortune to attend an FDIM, my hat is off to QRP-ARCI and the organizers for their outstanding effort year after year.

Tomorrow, my son and I are going to build a crystal radio as part of his school science fair project. I will try and post some photos; and will let you know how it turned out.
