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!

Happy Halloween

There will not be much time for radio today ..... chores in the morning, and then taking my kids "Trick or Treating" this afternoon. Then this evening, my local Knights of Columbus Council is throwing a Halloween party; and I am one of the two guys tasked with running that.

So I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a fun and safe Halloween.  Enjoy the time spent with your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews. May there be enough ghosties and goblins at your door to take all your candy; so that you won't be tempted by the left overs like I am.

Hon ..... did you save me a few Snickers bars ??????

Hi Larry, the last few years Halloween become popular in some parts of the Netherlands. We have something similar typical Dutch: Sint Maarten. Kids under 12 go with nice light ions at night, singing songs and go for candy. That happens November 11. We had a great Halloween party here. 73 Paul
