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!

If the shirt I'm wearing had buttons, they'd all have popped!

My two kids, Joey and Cara had a half day at school today.  A friend's sister drove them home, so early this afternoon I started a text conversation with Joey:

Me: Home?

Joey: Now we r.

Me: Good! You got a ride.

Joey: Yes!

Me: I guess Cara's happy.

Joey: Yes she is.  Guess what place I got in science fair.

Me: 1st

At this point, I wasn't getting an answer, so I texted again:

Me: ???

The reason I wasn't getting an answer is that Joey was sending me this photo:


If this golf shirt that I'm wearing had buttons on it, they'd all have popped by now.  I am so proud of Joey and Cara, they are both great kids.  God has truly blessed me.
