Merry Christmas, et. al.

I have looked at my personal schedule, it is likely to be very light blog posting over the holidays as I am booked, booked solid I tell you.  So, if I don’t get to say it, Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Festivus, Happy Saturn Festival, Happy Druid dirt munching dancing naked under a full moon, or whatever it is you celebrate.

For my part, it has been an interesting year.  It started out a little trepidus, what with my full time job being eliminated in January.  I was fortunate to be re-employed part-time right away, many don’t get that luxury.  Then, my wife returned to teaching full time, which made me, by necessity, a stay at home dad four days a week.  There have been many changes, but in the end, everything has worked out rather well.

While at home, I have worked on the blog and other ways to earn a little extra money.  I can say that I am genuinely surprised by the reception this blog gets, both in the comments and off line e-mails and phone calls.  I have enjoyed interacting with other industry professionals and bystanders, and although I might not agree with everyone on every point, I respect you all and value your input.  I have found that while my engineering work hours are reduced, the amount of raw material for blogging is also reduced.  I have also found that 14-15 posts per month is the right balance between quantity and quality, with the later being foremost importance.  For as long as I have quality raw material to work with, I will endeavor to write about, take pictures of, and research issues that involve radio broadcasting.

Next year will undoubtedly bring about more changes.  I look forward to hearing from you and I wish you all well over the holidays and on into the New Year.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
~Rudyard Kipling

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes the freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers

...radio was discovered, and not invented, and that these frequencies and principles were always in existence long before man was aware of them. Therefore, no one owns them. They are there as free as sunlight, which is a higher frequency form of the same energy.
