Merry Christmas

This was the scene at the end of my street a few days ago. In fact it still looks pretty much the same so it seems that we will have a white Christmas!
I am looking forward to opening my dual band radio tomorrow (in addition to my other gifts of course) and will post my finding on the new rig in the next few days. I am hoping it will be superior to the earlier Chinese made gear like my KYD 2 metre handie pictured below which I have had for around 5 years. Although it is not an entirely bad little rig it does suffer with low audio (I have enlarged the microphone hole which helps), slow scan speeds and an s meter which either reads full scale or nothing at all.

Anyway I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and best wishes for 2011.


  1. Good morning Kevin, it sure does look like a white Christmas for you out your way. My XYL's mom and aunts still live in England and they call once a week and just can't believe the amount of snow that has come their way. Kevin have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  3. Ian,

    Hope you didn't hurt yourself!! You will know my QTH exactly then as no doubt you will have spotted the HF whip on my car!

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you.
