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!

Threat to the 440 MHz band

Subject: ARRL Asks Members to Write in Opposition to HR 607

Greetings Members:

Please read information at the following link regarding HR607:


"ARRL is asking its members to contact their US representatives in
opposition to the sections of HR 607 that could affect the Amateur
Radio Service allocation at 420-440 MHz. HR 607 is a direct threat is a
direct threat to our limited spectrum and the ARRL encourages all
amateurs to appropriately voice their opposition to this bill."

A Sample Letter for addressing this matter is at:

Letters MUST go to the ARRL representative in Washington (Chwat and
Co), NOT directly to your local Representative in Congress. Due to how
postal mail is now physically processed to Congress, post 9/11, delays
in timely deliver, sometimes of months or more, can be incurred. The
ARRL representative will hand deliver letters on this matter to the
appropriate locations/people  Full Contact info for Chwat and Co is at:
