And the same to you Steve.

But is there the greeting in every language of all the current SOTA associations in there? And have you, mistakenly, included the greeting in a language not generally spoken in any current association? :wink:

Anyone up for a 2m FM S2S on Christmas Day?

Compliments of the Season,

Tom M1EYP, Marianne, Jimmy M3EYP & Liam

Here’s the one in dutch:

“Vrolijk kerstfeest en gelukkig nieuwjaar aan iedereen !!!”

There’s a card for you all on Flicka,sorry I only do French and German and not very well at that. Anyone recognise the summit? It’s an NP and the camera is standing on the trig. All the best to everyone from both of us, you’re a great crowd.
Happy Christmas and a Good New Year to you all,
Rob and Audrey

In reply to G4RQJ:

Anyone recognise the summit?

No, because I haven’t been there yet! For those that want to see whether their guess is correct, just match the photo date with Rob’s activation record…

Looks a nice summit. Maybe get that under the belt in 2008.

Best wishes to you both and all other activators and chasers for Christmas and the New Year,

Hi, Tom

Anyone up for a 2m FM S2S on Christmas Day?

Depends on the time. None of your silly-o’clock in the morning activations, please. I’d be allowed out to Long Mynd (ice permitting) while XYL & Steven are at Church. Invited out for lunch, so no spuds to bash.

Regards, Dave, M0DFA

No Dave, it will be at quite a civilised time on Christmas Day - see SOTAwatch Alerts. XYL Marianne will be getting in at 0800 after a night-shift, so we will do presents then with her, and then going out when she goes to bed for a kip before we too all eat out for Christmas Dinner (at the local balti house).

73, Tom

In reply to M0SGB :
Merry Xmas and a happy new year to all sotarists. Thanks for my first year I have really enjoyed the new hobby.

New Year’s Resolution for me, is to get this ageing body up Snowdon for a cw activation, and get my activator points up to 200. watch this space.

73’s Mike G0HIO

(Tom I have always said there should be a cw abbreviation for merry xmas we will have to invent one)

The obvious one seems to be “dah dah dah di di dah” sent as a special character - but perhaps that is already in use for something else?

Or perhaps “O O O A” (think about it!).
