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 deal !

Hey, I may get that 160 Meter vertical built before winter, yet!

Take a look at this deal on eBay:


A set of 12 pieces of 4 foot interlocking fiberglass poles for $7.00 plus shipping! The deal came down to less than $26.00. Let's see ..... if I put eight of these together, it will probably come to about 30 -31 feet total height. The lowest price I was able to find a 31 foot Jackite pole was $60 without shipping!

I found this via K1TP's website.

Wow! Thanks for sharing this link, I just bought a set myself. Shipping's a bit more expensive to California, but not by very much.
