    Any chance she would be willing to tag along while you go shopping in an AR store??
    There are some things in the A**L bookstore that might be nice, tho?

    The nearest one is an HRO in Milwaukee, which would be fun, despite Sunday's game. But it's a bit out of our way.

    Yes, there are. An antennas book would be nice.

    Then you shouldn't/wouldn't have brought it up, now would you? :p

    What should you get? For HF? With the Sun the way he is, at the top of my shopping list would be an amplifier and/or a better antenna or the components and assistance needed to put one up. ;)

    VHF/UHF? If you haven't tried the digital voice modes, a DMR or D-Star radio and maybe a hotspot to go with it.

    The Antenna Book is worth every penny. I have several. I never open them -- I use the CD-ROM that comes in the back, which has the entire book plus reference material in PDF format. It's much easier to search and read (for me).

    I also like the Low-Band DXing book they sell. And the Handbook is also fun to flip through every few years.

    All of them have the book on CD in the back, if that appeals to you.

    That's another good idea. The A**L store has a lot of RSGB books, and many of them are quite good. Lots of antenna design books...

    How about a new, comfortable chair for the Shack?

    I would hold out for a nice shack in a nice vacation home on the French Riviera. That surely qualifies, as it is likely nothing you would buy for yourself, and would be real cool to get as a gift. :p
