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!

It's all a matter of perception.

I hope I am not touching a nerve here.  But really, it's all a matter of perception.  What is a hindrance to one is a golden opportunity for another.

Old .... antiquated ...... useless ...... an anachronism?

I think not.

Many moons ago when I lived in Phoenix Az....there were some hams working with the hearing impaired learning Morse. They used a speaker with a half table tennis ball glued into the cone for a tactile "receiver". Sending of course via straight key. As I recall it worked extremely well. Best, Chas W5PG
