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!

If you're a CW op and like to use bugs, that is!

Richard Meiss WB9LPU posted to the Brasspounders Yahoo Group two new bugs.  The BB-7 and the GoBug.  The GoBug has got my radar beeping full blast!  I can imagine taking this guy to the field:

And the BB-7 is a work of beauty! The wood base is gorgeous and I'm sure like all of Rich's creations, is a joy to use.

Just think - if I didn't just purchase that new lawn mower .....

Boy this got me itching to finish up my QRP SSB DXCC chase and get back to the CW journey!

Boy, I really want to give a bug a try now. Both of these sound very easy to tame for the newbie bug user...(that means me) ;-)
