Christmas loggings from the Fredriksfors Radio Shack

Xmas greetings from our Radio Shack!
This time me and Ona (my faithful dog & best friend) will spend the Christmas without Donald Duck as we have no TV here in the shack. DD on Xmas Eve is one of the most consistent Swedish Christmas traditions there is but honestly I am just as happy with my radio. At the moment, there are very few transatlantic signals as the solar conditions are not very favourable and solar winds are too speedy. Still, let's hop for better conds soon. Over to the log from the Fredriksfors shack sofar. All times are UTC.
I wish you all a very Merrry Christmas and GOOD DX!
