Some Holiday Happiness for a Ham

Call Sign Display Header

OK…

So……..this post has nothing to do with survival.

Now since that disclaimer is out of the way, I thought I would share a fluff piece on what you could give any ham radio operator in your life for the holidays. Sure, that ham probably wants all kinds of expensive gear, and if you have plenty of money to spare, then by all means, go buy them more electronic crack if you wish. But for those of you who are looking for something far less expensive and/or something definitely more personalized, here is a suggestion that doesn’t need to cost a lot of money. It can even be made at home.

What kind of gift could this be?

A call sign display for his/her ham shack.

Here are some examples of what could be made or ordered before the holidays:

call sign displaysOk…so the one on the bottom left is not really a call sign, but I thought old maps “modge podged” onto wooden letters would be another good idea for a display.

As far as the other examples, some of them were made by the hams themselves, and some of the others are available to be custom ordered from the vendors listed below:

You may now resume your regular scheduled survival, prepping, and homesteading practices. 😉
