Christmas Greetings from KH6JRM on Hawaii Island.

The Christmas Holiday is being celebrated all over the world by Christian communities ranging from Northern Iraq to the United States of America.  Although most of the holiday festivities will be celebrated by Orthodox Christian communities a bit later (January, 2018), The feeling of goodwill is a welcome break from the  usual saber rattling and political posturing which have dominated the old year of 2017.

On Hawaii Island, residents will get a bit of a white Christmas, thanks to almost a foot and a half/0.457 meters of snow on the upper slopes of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.  Check out the webcams at both sites to see how normally tropical Hawaii Island reacts to this dusting of snow.

Listed below are three seasonal observations from three radio amateurs as they contemplate the holiday season:
