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!

Hate to do this.

I hate "stealing" material from my fellow bloggers.  I saw this referenced on John N8ZYA's extremely good blog and I thought that it could withstand repeating:



This is such a good video for promoting Amateur Radio!

It not only shows some of the "cooler" things you can do with the hobby; but it also stresses that Amateur Radio still serves as an important communications back up role.

A very big tip o' the hat to John N8ZYA - cool beans, John!
