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!

Enough said !!!

I love trains, I really do!  But I sure wish the "Arctic Express" would find a different destination.  We're looking forward to return trips tomorrow night and possibly a huge layover next Tuesday.  Whew!

These were taken as a result of the visit we received last night from the "Alberta Clipper".

Hi Larry, well, that is a lot of snow! Winter is still going on there. We are lucky, only freezing weather, this morning minus 2 C, and fortunately no snow. 73 Paul.

So pretty. You're lucky to have some snow. We don't get it here, and have to drive up the hill towards South Lake Tahoe to see snow. I wouldn't mind shoveling a little, though I would mind the salt. At least here they use sand in the mountains which still gets messy.

Hi Larry,

A few weeks ago, my wife and I were in New York during that big storm. I feel for you up there because I had no idea what a 50 mph wind and two feet of snow actually means to a bad back with a snow shovel in hand. BTW/ I bought my "kindle" last week and am enjoying the West Virginia snow for a change. It's time to do some reading in this cold weather....
