A Ham’s Night Before Christmas


Welcome to the Christmas Eve/Christmas Day special from Big Island ARRL News.

Top Story:  Now that the Christmas Season has fully arrived, I thought a look back at a Christmas Classic familiar to radio amateurs worldwide might be appropriate.  The original program was published by HQ ARRL on 28 November 2011, and it remains a favorite today.

A Ham’s Night Before Christmas Video

11/28/2011Just in time for the Holidays, Gary Pearce, KN4AQ, has created a video version of Clement Clark Moore’s poem A Visit from St Nicholas, more commonly known as The Night Before Christmas, but Gary’s version has a decidedly Amateur Radio twist. With a guitar accompanyment by Don Mercz, WA3AYR, A Ham’s Night Before Christmas features QST magazine covers, Gil cartoons and Christmas-themed QST advertisements from days gone by.
