Black Friday has arrived. I’m not nutty enough to get out in that madness, but my wife and our daughter both work in retail and so are consigned to work the most ridiculous hours imaginable during this weekend. The level of greed and rudeness is off the human meter. It horribly taints Christmas if you ask me and I can’t imagine anyone really wants it to be like this…

I haven’t had nearly as many stolen moments to play radio as I thought I might this long weekend. I’ve managed a single QSO so far but it was an enjoyable ragchew with Butch, NM1I in Massachusetts.

The big CQWW CW contest will be underway soon so I’ll probably spend whatever stolen moments remain this weekend hanging out on 30 meters, trying to avoid the Black Friday like radio frenzy.
