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!

Hello Dayton !!!!

Are any of my readers at FDIM and/or Hamvention?

Do you have anything you'd like to share?  Comments, stories, news items?

Anybody not at Dayton that wants to relate a favorite memory or anything else?

Just for this weekend, I've taken off some of the restrictions on commenting, including allowing anonymous comments - but please, give your name and call sign!  (I will delete offensive or spam comments.)

I sure wish I was there! I always have a place to stay as my grandparents live just outside of Dayton. My grandmother just turned 90 and I missed that AND Dayton this year. But, Dayton is in my plans for 2014 since we will be living much closer. Sad story is, I lived in Ohio most of my life and never attended Dayton. Ashamed to admit that but sometimes when something is in your own backyard, you take it for granted. No longer! Dayton 2014 or bust for this ham! :0) Phil KL8DX

I'm lucky to live about an hour away from Dayton and made my second trip there this year... Had a great time and picked up a few things while there.
Heard the best joke ever: You know how copper wire was invented ??
It was the result of two Hams fighting over a copper penny !
