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!

A request

Anything that appears in this blog is free to be used elsewhere.  I really don't mind at all if you see anything here that you want to use in your club newsletter, your own blog, or even if you want to print something out and put it on your refrigerator!

As my regular readers know, I have posted things that I have seen on QRP-L, and even things from other blogs and Websites (such as Jim W1PID's adventures) that I thought merited sharing.  But, when re-posting another's material, I always go to great pains to name the source, so that there is NO CONFUSION that what I have posted in those instances is not my original material.  Hey, if I didn't think of it, I ain't gonna take credit for it!

So please, if you're going to use anything you see here (and I invite you to!  Please, feel free!) - just don't copy and paste without mentioning that you saw it here.  While it's not a big sweat to do this blog, it does take some forethought and effort.  I love to share - just don't make it look like you're the author of my words - OK?

Thanks so much!

Hello Larry, put a copyright claim on your blog and sue them. That will learn. Today I posted something about PlanetHam. An aggregator site (RSS feed) who have articles of other web sites. 73 Paul
