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!

Memorial Day - 2011

Since 1868, Decoration Day, has been a day set aside for us to remember and pray for our fallen soldiers.  This day has come to be known as Memorial Day and it is the day we honor all American Soldiers who have died in American conflicts - from the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror.  It is fitting for us to remember that freedom is not free; and we have our freedoms because of the price that they have paid.

Today, throughout the cities, towns, villages and boros of the United States, wreaths have been laid, salutes have been fired, speeches have been made, parades have been marched, Old Glory has been saluted and "Taps" has been played.

It is fitting to take this day to also remember and pray for the living, those who have suffered from injuries, missing limbs, psychological trauma ..... those who may be home, but for them the war has not ended.  And also this is a day to say to all of our Veterans - "Thank you for your honored service - may God continue to bless you and may God continue to bless America".
