N4JGU writes "Having three kids does not leave me much time to ragchew (if I did ragchew the evening away I probably would find myself soon with lots of time to myself if you know what I mean) on HF so I usually search for Special Events or try to grab some DX when I get a few minutes with the radio in the evening. Tuning around the dial on 20 meters I came across W6S (Whiskers Six Santa) calling CQ. I listened and nobody answered. He called again and with the three letter call I figured it was some sort of special event. So I came back QRO (with an Elecraft K2 QRO is 10 watts!) and promptly got an answer. W6S identified himself as Santa Claus and stated with the radio equivalent of the wink of his eye his QSL manager was WO6T. I put two and two together and quickly realized whom W6S was (WO6T) and called my 8 year old son to the shack (this will probably his last year of "Santa Claus"). I told him Santa was on the air. "Santa" then chatted with my son and asked him Santa questions such as "what do you want for Christmas" and "have you been good this year". Of course after we signed a pileup developed of other Hams with their kids who were eagerly waiting to talk to "Santa". During our QSO Carl (WO6T) mentioned to me he has been doing this for many many years. He even has his own website with a web cam so the kids can watch Santa talking live on the radio! I can hardly think of a better way to advance ham radio (esp. to kids) during the holidays. Thanks Carl (WO6T, aka W6S) for volunteering your time to make a child's day. I know you did with mine and hope to QSO with you next Christmas (two more kids to go!) Yes maybe there really is a Santa...if you have been good look for him on 20 meters! 73's to all Rick Wheeler N4JGU"
