Christmas Sebbatical

leave a comment

I’ll be off the air for the Christmas season. Not much going on in the contesting world, and more importantly there is a lot going on at this time of year that takes precedence.

I’ve resumed my winter scanner monitoring hobby and will return to amateur radio sometime early in the New Year. I’ve still got a shortened 40m wire up, just in case. But the main antenna is down and much cabling and eyesore have been removed.

It’s been a really enjoyable year for me with regard to contests and QSO parties. I’ve improved upon the station. I’ve worked quite a few new DXCC. I’ve got Basic WAS and am very close to WAS on two or three bands. I’ve learned quit a bit. I’ve regained my CW code copy abilities. I’ve had the privilege of working many decent amateur radio ops. All in all a great year!
