So long for now ….. sort of!

So long for now, sort of!

I have decided to ask Matt W1MST, the Editor at to end the mirroring of this blog there.  I know this may appear to be kind of sudden, but actually, this has been a decision that I have been trying to discern since this past Easter.

The content of this blog is mostly about QRP and CW as you all know. So actually, I do cater to a rather small niche in the Amateur Radio world, and the things of which I write are not of interest to everyone – or even a large portion of everyone.  In addition, I have also been known to throw in random posts here and there that are of a religious or political nature, when the mood strikes me.  And I also regale my readers with my wacky sense of humor now and then.  They say that writers should write about what they know best, and that’s what I try to do – and at this stage of my life, I’m not going to change that.

That’s fine for people who actually come to looking for that kind of thing.  They know what they’re in for when they walk through my door. But to be foisted upon folks coming to a “general interest” Amateur Radio site?  I think maybe not so much.

So, readers, if you like my ramblings – please feel free to come to at anytime, 24/7/365.  The door is always open and you’ll always be welcome. And per chance, should you not like what you see there – you’re always free to “change the channel”.

My thanks to Matt W1MST and for the continued support over the past few years. Matt has been a most gracious host, ever since he asked my permission to mirror this blog over there. Certainly, the service he offers to the Amateur Radio community is a treasure. I will continue to keep the link to active and open in my blog roll.  I hope you’ll feel free to bounce back and forth between us.

    Larry, thank you so much for your contributions over the years. I’ve truly enjoyed your writing and I look forward to reading more on your blog. You’ll be missed here!

  • kc2nyu:

    We will follow you to your blog- but it’s so much easy to do thru

    So sorry to see you make this move- yours are the best entries every day


  • Mitch DJ0QN:

    Sorry to see you leave, Larry. Your blogs actually got me interested in QRP, which would not have happened without the mirroring.

    I think you are not doing the right thing by leaving, but that is your decision. This is like TV; if someone is not interested in a blog, they can read another one (i.e. change the channel). It is too bad to lose your “channel” here.
