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!

Halloween Fright

So far, power has only been out twice and for a few seconds at a time. Antennas are still OK, except the the one End Fed Zepp (which I hardly ever use) is drooping a lot.

Hey Ned,

We were good. We lost power for about an hour this morning. 3/4 of South Plainfield wasn't so lucky though. They were without power from 2:00 Saturday afternoon until about 5:00 AM Sunday morning. I had to drive my son a couple of towns over for a Halloween party Saturday evening. it was weird driving through blacked out sections that had no street lights or traffic lights going. Lots of police, everywhere!

I heard about it in the news Larry. Snow is early this year in your area.
