- Stay tuned for a giveaway at the end of the post! -

Today's post is all about Christmas traditions. Lovely, lovely Christmas traditions. As you may have guessed by my million blog posts this month, it's my favourite time of year and has been since I was a little chiddler. I've been trying to think about which little moments make me feel the most excited and festive in the lead up to Christmas; is it putting up my decorations and my tree up? Is it when I break and play Michael Buble's Christmas album in October (the less said about that the better)? There are just too many. What I really do love, though, is that first trip out to start looking for Christmas presents. Between spotting bits you know are going to put a big fat grin on people's faces to the Christmas lights in the streets around you, it gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling every year without fail. Michael Buble playing in my head every step of the way, of course.

This year me and my Mam headed through to Edinburger for some Christmas bits and left with an actual suitcase of stuff. HO ho holy shit, I know. I wore the best navy coat the world has seen (thank you, Sandro) and my trusty Zara scarf. It was surprisingly mild that day - I genuinely think it hit a tropical 14 degrees at one point - so I dared to get my ankles out and wore my new silky jumpsuit to make a very navy outfit.

Now in the spirit of all things Christmas, I've got a little giveaway for you! Because Christmas is all about bringing a little joy to others - and about Christmas chocolate, of course - I have a ha-uge Lindt hamper to give away to one lucky person. I know, my stomach just started rumbling too. All I would like you to do is let me know your favourite Christmas memory or tradition (go on, make me feel all fuzzy inside) along with a way I can contact you. E-mail address, twitter handle - you choose. Simples! Good luck to you all and, remember, sharing is caring... so if you want to send some of that hamper my way I won't say no.

In the meantime, if you're in need of some Christmas Inspiration, then make sure and check out the Lindt Christmas hub which is filled with festive tips as well as info on how you can help support the NSPCC through Lindt!

That coat is just dreams.. I have a thing for navy at the moment.. I'm so drawn to it!
Fab giveaway, not that i need more chocolate, so will definitely share (the guilt) Haha!
So hard to pick one, so I'll give you a few, so you can either bonus me or disqualify me.. Haha!
At the end of Christmas day you'll always have at least two Terry's chocolate oranges.
We always have bacon sandwiches at 10am on Christmas day and boxing day.
On a sentimental note, I have two Christmas tree baubles that sit proudly on our tree in memory of my parents.
I also have a shot Famous Grouse on Christmas day evening in memory of my dad who passed away on that day.

I have a family tradition (basically instilled by me) of putting up a picture of Ringo Starr together with the star on top of our Christmas tree! What can I say, Beatles and puns are my two passions.

Love reading you!

I never used to enjoy Christmas that much, and would end up watching a trilogy of films by myself. However, for the last two years I've been with a wonderful partner and we've gone on holiday for christmas each year. Somewhere where we can just be together and get away from the craziness of the season. We've just gotten back from Portugal, and I have to admit I'm so happy we missed the terrible weather in Glasgow!

Yay giveaway! My favourite Christmas tradition is getting the whole family to decorate the tree together with our Kings college choir Christmas carol CD playing. And it wouldn't be complete without family tiffs about which tacky decorations make the cut

Thanks for the giveaway and Happy New Year!
My Christmas tradition is that we always visit the zoo on Christmas day or boxing day for an hour as we have annual passes. It means we get some fresh air rather than staying in our PJs all day and we can wish the animals Merry Christmas!

Telepon genggam atau oleh sebagian besar orang menyebutnya sebagai handphone adalah alat komunikasi yang paling digemari saat ini. Handphone merupakan perangkat telekomunikasi ht baofeng terbaik elektronik yang mempunyai kemampuan dasar yang sama dengan telepon konvensional saluran tetap, namun dapat dibawa ke mana-mana (portabel, mobile) dan tidak perlu disambungkan dengan jaringan telepon menggunakan kabel (nirkabel; wireless). Alat komunikasi ini memudahkan kita dalam berkomunikasi secara langsung tanpa harus bertatap muka. Teknologi ini telah menggeser fungsi surat dan telegram sebagai alat komunikasi bagi mereka yang bertempat tinggal saling berjauhan. Yang membedakan handphone dengan telepon kabel adalah handphone telah dilengkapi fasilitas SMS (Sort Messages Service) yaitu sebuah pelayanan yang diberikan untuk berkirim pesan teks secara elektronik dan dapat dibawa kemana saja dengan mudahkarena tidak membutuhkan kabel listrik. Sekarang ini handphone berkembang dengan dilengkapi internet, kamera digital, video digital, pemutar musik digital dan fasilitas canggih lain.

Perkembangan teknologi ht baofeng terbaik komunikasi ini tidak lepas dari pengaruh yang ditimbulkan oleh arus globalisasi dunia yang makin gencar masuk ke dalam kehidupan kita. Sekarang ini, sangat mudah bagi kita untuk mengakses berbagai macam informasi baik dari dalam negeri maupun luar negeri. Pada awalnya alat komunikasi handphone ini hanya digunakan oleh kalangan tertentu yang mampu membelinya, karena harganya yang mahal. Namun kini, dapat kita jumpai dengan mudah orang-orang yang mempunyai handphone, bahkan saat ini telah tersedia handphone yang dilengkapi internet dengan berbagai bentuk dan merek dari yang paling murah sampai yang paling mahal di toko-toko gadget. Tidak hanya di kalangan orang dewasa, anak-anak dewasa ini telah dipegangi handphone yang tidak kalah canggih oleh orangtua mereka.

Orang dahulu menggunakan ht baofeng terbaik, surat atau telegram untuk berkomunikasi dengan orang lain yang berada jauh darinya dan kemungkinan surat itu akan sampai ke tangan penerima beberapa hari kemudian. Namun, dengan adanya telepon genggam cukup mengetik SMS dan menekan tombol “send’ maka tanpa menunggu lama pesan akan sampai pada penerima beberapa detik kemudian. Inilah alasan mengapa handphone telah menggeser fungsi surat dan telegram sebagai alat komunikasi jarak jauh. Selain mudah dan cepat, menggunakan handphone untuk berkirim pesan relatif lebih murah.

Dampak yang ditimbulkan tidak selalu positif, banyak juga dampak negatif yang dtimbulkan oleh alat komunikasi modern ini salah satunya mengurangi kemampuan interaksi sosial masyarakat. Dengan adanya ht baofeng terbaik handphone, masyarakat tidak perlu saling bertatap muka satu sama lain secara langsung untuk membicarakan sesuatu karena hanya dengan menelepon atau mengirim sms mereka sudah dapat bercakap-cakap sehingga menimbulkan rasa malas untuk bersosialisasi dengan orang lain dan lingkungan sekitar. Dampak negatif lain dengan semakin canggihnya aplikasi dalam handphone memudahkan orang untuk mengakses berbagai bentuk informasi baik positif maupun negatif sehingga mengurangi nilai-nilai dalam masyarakat. Bagaimanapun juga, segala bentuk dampak yang ditimbulkan oleh alat elektronik ini positif atau negatif tergantung pada bagaimana kita dapat menyaring segala informasi yang kita peroleh dari alat elektronik tersebut.

ht Baofeng ini memiliki dual frekuensi untuk TRX (VHF dan UHF) dan 1 frekuensi lagi untuk FM Radio. Sementara baru saya review untuk antena bawaannya dengan frekuensi 136MHz s/d 480MHz (include FM antena yang menjadi 1) Sebelum review power output mari kita bahas untuk antena bawaannya. U-V Antenna di situlah tercantumnya. Antena yang cukup mungil dengan panjang sekitar 22cm.

untuk jenis konektornya menggunakan sma female. Langsung saja lihat gambar untuk grafik atau nilai SWR yang diraih oleh antena bawaannya cukup mengejutkan buat antena bawaan dari HT ht baofeng terbaik, pada umumnya antena HT tidak sebagus ini, saya sebut bagus berdasarkan pengukuran dengan menggunakan VNA (vector network analyzer) merk Anritsu MS2034B. di gambar atas bisa terlihat SWR yang diraih dari antena.

satu hal lagi pengukuran ini yang diukur adalah nilai SWR bukan dari Gain antena. Terlihat MK1 TR1 pada frekuensi 143.240MHz nilai SWR nya 1,07. sangat bagus untuk antena bawaan dari HT. Pengukuran ini sepenuhnya seperti kondisi lapangan, antena diukur bedekatan dengan muka atau kepala kita waktu kita memegang ht baofeng terbaik (saat berbicara/TX) pada frekuensi itulah SWR terbaik yang di dapat. Nah sedangkan untuk frekuensi UHF MK2 TR2 frekuensi418.360MHz nilai SWR nya 1.39MHZ lebih jelek dari pada pada frekuensi VHF. not bad lah..

untuk antena bawaan dari ht baofeng terbaik HT bikinan "China" lebih dari cukup untuk pemakaian di lapangan yang pasti nilai swr tidak stabil sedangkan untuk pengetesan transmit pada antena, sekitar 2menit untuk TX, lumayan hangat antenanya, kemungkinan kemampuan handling power antena tidak besar (wajar lagi buat antena HT) Sekarang untuk pengetasan frekuensi radio FM,, WOW mesti bilang seperti itu, frekuensi RX nya untuk FM radio cukup lebar 65MHz s/d 108MHz hmmmm 65MHz radio apa di indonesia ya...mungkin breaker FM yang kolongan butuh ini.

Sedang untuk 2m Band RTX frekuensinya : 136 s/d 174.995MHz dan untuk UHF Band RTX frekuensinya : 400 s/d 520Mhz (wow lagi ah) >> ingat frekuensi TV broadcast teresterial di indonesia 470MHz s/d 860Mhz. Frekuensi ht baofeng terbaik ini masuk ke frekuensi TV juga, otomatis bisa buat Transmit atau RX juga...hmmmm sangat cocok buat modifikator yang

nikmatnya peganG HT ini, yang sering kali kita remehkan dan kadang tidak terpikirkan, Lampu LED warna putih yang berfungsi sebagai senter, sangat membantu di kegelapan gan hehehehee, lumayan mesti tidak terang banget. Cukup tekan tombol MON sudah nyala tuh lampu. sedangkan untuk spek bater bisa dilihat di gambar atas Kemampuan RX dan TX standar untuk ht baofeng terbaik dengan power 5W. Nilai minus dari HT ini ada pada gantungan tali yang ringkir alias bisa patah, mungkin disainnya kurang tepat penempatannya, keseluruhan bagus buat HT BAOFENG BF-F9 ini... next test HIGH power dan LOW power dari HT ini, spesifikasi segera menyusul.. *matursuwun agan adit buat kadonya
