Welcome to the fun.

I am still putting up my Halloween show. The faces are up and running, the CCRs are fired up, the new pixels are sparkling on the trees even though the leaves are blocking them some. The elements are going in, the spiderweb Brian makes is up, and the cauldron witch is ready to start stirring. Have another week or so and it will be fully up and running.

I didn't think I added so much to the show this year but it is taking longer to put up for some reason.

And someone decided to put a new radio station close to my normal show freq. HOW DARE THEY!!!

I think the madness begins all year long! This is only my second year and I didn't heed the warnings last year that I'd start planning before December was over. Sure enough I found myself searching for new info, pixels, e682, lor advanced license...it never ends!!! But definitely the anxieties of coming holidays are starting to build.. Time crunch, but oh so fun and it helps me to remember the true meanings of the Christmas spirit!

Yeah, I use 88.9.  The new station is 88.7.  89.5 has always been occupied.  I thought 88.9 was good separation from that 89.5 and with nothing lower I was happy.

 

I use a handheld transistor radio to test my lights and I cant digitally program it to 88.9 as it is a slider type tuner.  I used to be able to just go to the bottom and my station was the first one up.  Not anymore.

 

I think I have enough separation for this year.  And my station only makes it a block all directions.  But finding my station on the handheld is more tedious and that is causing me grief and longer setup.  I guess it is time to search the waves for a new channel next year.
