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!

I like getting and sending QSL cards. I am guilty of not QSLing as fast as I should; but I do eventually get them out. I also like looking at other Ham's QSL cards, especially old ones.

I found this great site through eHam. If you like looking at older QSL cards, I think you will really enjoy this site:

Next project will be the 160 Meter board for the K2. I dug it out and looked at it last night; and even at my snail's pace, I should be able to get through this quickly. I already sorted the parts out. I should be on 160 Meters this Fall and Winter, even without a proper antenna. The 160 Meter vertical that I want to build will have to wait as the purchase of the Jackite pole is on hold for a while.
