Happy Christmas


Best wishes of the season from GM4FVM

Sunrise at GM4FVM on 25 December 2020

Above is a photo this morning of the sunrise here, with the antennas firmly lowered. 

I could have brightened the foreground in Photoshop, but the murky appearance just represents my mood perfectly.

Perhaps part of that glow in the sky is the blazing masthead preamps of a fellow GM. You have my sympathies Tom, I have never seen a mast-top fire before !!!!

I have not reported much lately because I have not been doing much on the radio. I have been concentrating on many other things.

Still, everything is looking up! We have passed out the period of sub-7hour days, with the day length having risen to a giddy 7 hours and 1 second. VK heard on 10m, a small "Christmas Es" event on 6m and ... well nothing much to write about really.

I seem to have lost my way a bit with the radio. This is not a hobby that gives freely and consistently: for me there are times when the enthusiasm wanes. If I have learned anything over the years it is that the best plan is to let it go. Switch off and do something else for a while. It is a bad idea for me to keep thrashing on when there is nothing available to keep my interest up.

So, until the fog inside my head lifts (which might be this afternoon), all I have to say is Happy Christmas.

Plus, of course, have a great Hogmanay, and don't do anything I wouldn't do.




P.S. Is there anything worse than a bad deal? Yes, a dead band. 

P.P.S. For anyone reading this posting outside the UK, I will not try to explain the above. It is impossible to translate into the real world.
