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!

Speaking of portable ops

Here's a video by Dennis Blanchard, K1YPP who is also the author of "Three Hundred Zeros"

Dennis hiked the Appalachian Trail, among other places and has lived to tell us all about it.  If you haven't read his book, then you're missing a good read.  While there's not a whole lot in devoted to Amatuer Radio, it is a good read nonetheless, and inspiring, too.

I use to live less than a mile from the AT in Sussex County, yet never set foot on it!
