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!

So very cool!

Good friend and fellow Polar Bear, Rem K6BBQ posted this video on YouTube, about operating from the USS Pampanito, a World War II submarine.  The Pampanito is berthed near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.

Back in the day, when I worked in the professional photographic industry, my company used to send me out to Photo West.  The years that I attended, the trade show was held at Mosconi Center in "The City by the Bay".

I always enjoyed the many restaurants on and around the Wharf and Pier 39.  Going to the Pampanito was always a special treat!

Once again - great job, Rem!

Good evening Larry, that was a fantastic YouTube video. It was a total of 3:53 minutes long and great. I have been looking into doing some YouTube video's myself and I don't think most understand the time it takes to get just a 3 minute video as professional as this. Thanks for putting it out there Larry!

I like this video Larry! ;-)
Great post! I'm glad you got to visit the Pampanito.

Darn shame they haven't re-activated the original radios! :)
