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!

Thanks to Jeff KE9V

Many thanks to Jeff KE9V for supplying the KX3 photos and some commentary that he has shared with me.

I love Amateur Radio ....... I really, really do.

But you gotta admit, this non-Ham technology stuff is cool too (although it could never take the place of Ham Radio for me)!  Here I am, sitting at my dining room table, typing away on my WiFi compatible laptop.  At the same time, Jeff and I are trading e-mails as he uses his iPad in Dayton.

We definitely take too much for granted these days.  100 years ago - heck ..... 50 years ago, this would have all been considered "magic".
