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!

As if work isn't depressing enough .....


Dealing with the nonsense, silliness and outright stupidity of people at work is bad enough.  Then my hobby, my solace, my relief, my passion gets affected by things I cannot control.

Almost makes you want to throw in the towel.

Tell me about it. I know that if we enter a period of prolonged sunspot inactivity, we will find ways to be successful as hams, and we'll still get to have our ham radio fun, but the thought that I may never see another good sunspot maximum is depressing to say the least :-(
