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!

Just your usual day

up in New Hampshire.  Sailing on a beautiful lake in near perfect weather with good friends and then working the International Space Station!

Another fine post from outdoorsman and QRPer extraordinaire, Jim W1PID.

You know, while reading this, it occurred to me that as the last Shuttle mission ends with Atlantis landing Thursday morning, our manned spaceflight program is reaching a very low point during the Anniversary Week of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing mission.

From space dominance to a ride in the backseat in 42 years.  From boldly expanding our horizons with a great "We can do it" attitude to "Nah, it's not really worth it anymore".  Very sad - to me at least.
