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!

Christmas is a coming ......

I saw this mentioned on the Buddipole reflector; and with Christmas fast approaching, I thought I would post this here.  It's one of the better versions I've seen - notwithstanding the little jab at QRP!  :)

It was done very well; and I really enjoyed seeing all those old Ham Radio magazine Christmas ads - especially the ones from Burghardt's.  My very first transmitter, my Drake 2-NT was a Christmas present to me from my folks - and that's where they got it from!
