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!

Band conditions may have been in the toilet; but at least the scenery was good!

The bands were absolutely horrible...I was listening but hearing almost NOTHING. On the positive side, any day outdoors is a good day. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the beautiful day.

I have not been on the radio the last couple of day but I too hear the bands are not that great. Seems to me the view there is breath taking and the pic's are great. Maybe the IARU contest on Saturday may net you some contacts.....a point giver.

Oh wow - I grew up near Prospect Mountain. How cool! They didn't have solar panels the last time I was there, but I remember the views.

Thanks for posting those pics - I got a kick out seeing my old stomping grounds.
