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!

Busy weekend

I was going to install the 160 Meter board in the K2 tonight; but I'm a bit on the tired side from a tough day at work.

But the weekend looks like a good opportunity to get some "on air" time in. Tomorrow morning is the QRP ARCI SK Memorial Sprint, which last from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM EDT. I hope to spend some time in this one.

Then, later in the afternoon, starting at 4:00 PM is the NJ QSO Party. I will put Middlesex County on the air with my blazing 5 Watts and will attempt to hand out as many QSOs as I can, tomorrow and Sunday.

I will actually submit my scores this time, no matter how appalling they turn out to be! ;) I just hope that propagation is with me and that the bands are open.
