The Board of Directors, Officers and Committee chairs wish each of you a joyous and safe holiday season.  May I quote from KN4AQ (see https://www.hamradionow.tv/a-hams-night-before-christmas for entire  poem):

 

'Twas the night before Christmas,  
And all through two-meters,  
Not a signal was keying up  
Any repeaters.

 

The antennas reached up  
From the tower, quite high,  
To catch the weak signals  
That bounced from the sky.

 

The children, Technicians,  
Took their HT's to bed,  
And dreamed of the day  
They'd be Extras, instead.

 

Mom put on her headphones,  
I plugged in the key,  
And we tuned 40 meters  
For that rare ZK3.

 

 

Oh, too late, for his [Ham Santa's] final
Came over the air.  
It was copied all over. 
It was heard everywhere.

The Ham's Santa exclaimed
What an old ham expects: 
"Merry Christmas to all, 
And to all, good DX."
