With the supermarket shelves due to fill up with Xmas crackers, Xmas puddings, Xmas cards, selection boxes, fairy lights and tinsel within the next few days, I thought this may be a good time to mention my planned Xmas day morning activation.
Last year, on Christmas Day morning, I nipped down to my local summit G/SP-013 Gun and took a chance on a Christmas Day activation. To be quite honest, I was unsure whether I would even qualify the summit. As it turned out, in under two and half hours, the contacts came thick and fast including 29 on 18MHz and 24 on 21MHz (anyone else remember those far distant days when it was possible to work the higher HF frequencies?)
This for me was one of the best activations I completed last year. Just over one hour later and with 95 contacts in the log, I was back at my next door neighbours house, drinking Champagne and preparing to stuff myself with turkey…
In view of last years success, I’ve alerted for another Christmas Day morning activation on Gun, just for a couple of hours, subject to WX.
Anyone else up for what I can only describe as a great couple of hours radio?
