Tis the season...........

Tis the season to become at VE3WDM lately the dust has been gathering on my ham equipment. Over the past week and a half I had good intentions of sitting down and getting some radio time just has not come to be. There has been Christmas shopping, working late during weekdays and on weekends, putting the tree up and the list goes on. By the time I settle in getting on the radio feels more like a chore than hobby. On the happy side I do have 2 weeks off over Christmas and I made a list and checked it twice, there is no naughty on this list just some nice ham radio goals over the break.  This evening I found some time to get fire up the Elecraft K3. To my surprise I did not find the bands (20m, 30m and 40m) not in great shape. I didn't make any contacts but I did hear PY2CW from brazil and a few U.S stations but that was it.


  1. A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family, Mike.

    The best DX is a QSO with loved ones sitting across the breakfast table from you.

    Then make it a regular sked.

    1. Good morning Dick, how very true it's always time very well spent when spent with a loved one.
      A Merry Christmas to you and your family as well Dick.
