Those Darned Christmas Lights!

All the rage here are "LED" Christmas lights with "wall wart" power supplies with some fancy electronics to produce an amazing variety of light switching sequences.

In my neighbourhood "Light Wars" broke out earlier in the Christmas season - everyone seemingly trying to outdo everyone else with the brilliance of their festive displays.

Outdoor arrays seem to make pretty reasonable TX antennae.

Not good news for the poor QRPp WhiSPeRer :( I reckon my noise floor has risen by 3 to 6dB!

Hey Ho, c'est la vie!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all
