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!

Fallacies in Life

"The best things in life are free".

Sometimes, but not always. A lot of good things ARE free; but a lot of good things have to be bought and paid for.

"You get what you pay for".

Most of the times, this is true, but sometimes you get lucky and come across a bargain.

"The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence".

I think everyone older than about 10 years old knows that this isn't true.

"If it's a loud signal, he must be running power - if he's running QRP, who's gonna hear him?"

Let's NOT even go there!
