One year, the YL asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I told her, anything Ham Radio related would be a great gift for me. After about 30 seconds of awkward staring at each other, she asked where she could find those kinds of things, as she isn’t a Ham Radio op. I promptly pointed her to the ARRL website, but I also found another option for this year!
So I did a fast Google search and sure enough, the search algorithm, came through again with the website TechNote Time. They do have some unique gifts for Ham Radio operators and the prices do seem reasonable. The one that stood out to me was the On Air sign in neon blue. When I do get my “man cave” and have my shack all setup, this sign will have a nice place in it.
The Christmas ornaments are a nice touch for the Ham Radio family tree. They are made of porcelain and come in a few different designs. There’s also decals, novelty signs warning you of electrical shock or RF radiation, and more. So some nice gifts to be had. The trick is, dropping the subtle hints to the shopper who is looking.
They also have gifts not related to Ham Radio, but some could still fit the bill. They even offer gift certificates, if you’re not sure what to get. So there are a bunch of options available. If you’ve already completed your shopping, they well done! If not, you still have a little time to left to get something unique and nice for the Ham Radio op on your list.
