    My wife is asking for ideas for my upcoming birthday.

    What sort of things that you normally wouldn't buy, but if it was a gift, that'd be cool?

    Not a rig, but I am watching the For Sale forum closely.

    And don't suggest an ARRL membership; I don't want this thread to go off the rails and get locked before I get some good ideas.

    I want a beam antenna.

    November 14, for those who would like
    To make it a happy birthday. :)

    An easy one might be a parts organizer (the formal name for the a small chest of drawers, designed to store nuts, bolts, etc.) They work nicely for sorting electronic components, connectors, etc. It would be easy for a spouse to purchase because they understand exactly what it does and are probably appreciative of improved organization. They could be reused for other hobbies if your interest moved on at some point.

    I think an ARRL Membership would be nice...

    A set of Allen keys or Bristol wrenches.

    A nice set of headphones or a headset is the perfect gift: For you, you can hear audio much better and for her, to not hear audio at all. ;>

    Unless your family frowns on them, a gift certificate to a ham store might be good to avoid getting the “wrong” thing - especially with a technical hobby.
