    I think it's great that we can use our hobby to talk to the jolly elf himself! Think of the foundation that we can set, bringing both wholesome cultural things together for our young ones; HAM radio and Christmas... Both still hold magic for me.

    Never give up on the good guys and don't count them out. Merry Christmas to all and have fun HAMing it up. 73!

    To W8JBM. Hi Jim. Love the cam up shot but that left side eye in the light shade gives you away as human. I could be wrong it could be Panda under disguise. Hi Hi. Makes me remember doing daft things like :- This is me out on patrol etc. Gave all that up back in 1976. Anyway Merry Christmas to you and yours from the other side of the pond. 73 de John - G0WXU.

    Just wanted to put a bit more information about Santa net out. Santa net is up and running every evening through December 24 on 3.916. The net starts promptly at 0130Z (7:30PM Central time), and runs until the list is completed. If you have children in your household, or grand children, or neighbor children (well, you get the idea) you're welcome to sign up and get on the list. Just go to the website https://cqsanta.com, fill out and submit the simple form. That's all there is to it! The children you list will have their spot reserved to tell Santa what they want for Christmas. Just be sure to listen to 3.916 that evening, and you will be contacted over the air. Santa net has many relay stations scattered around the U.S., so you will surely be able to make contact with the big guy himself!

    More information is available on the web site previously given.
