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!

It was that kind of day at work ....

The kind that makes you shake your head and wonder why you ever do anyone a favor. Sometimes it only seems to come back to bite you in the butt and cause you so much grief.

But the day ended on a high note with a "twofer" in the 80 Meter Foxhunt.  I managed to snare both Dave N1IX and John K4BAI within the first 30 minutes. Sometimes it's the smaller things in life that bring the most pleasure.  Anyone outside of the Ham and QRP communities just wouldn't understand - but to me, it turned a cruddy day into a "not so bad" one.

And as if that wasn't good enough - I managed to hear and work Dallas N1DW as K6JSS/5 in Louisiana on 40 Meters. A virtual "threefer". Maybe tomorrow WILL be a better day!

2-fer too! Even with high noise level (could hardly hear K4BAI).
