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!

New header photo

That's Apollo 15.  This is the anniversary as the mission lasted from July 26th to August 7th, 1971.  This was the first mission that employed the Lunar Rover.  There were a total of four EVAs or Extra Vehicular Activities. There were three moonwalks by Dave Scott and Jim Irwin and a deep space spacewalk by Command Module Pilot Al Worden as he retrieved film from a bay in the spacecraft, while the the spacecraft was between the moon and the earth.

Not an Amateur Radio related post, but I've always loved this photograph.
