An outdoor contact with Santa, complete with crickets chirping in the background like sleighbells. It hasn't snowed in Orlando, Florida since 1977, but that wont't stop Santa and his sleigh from paying a good boy like Greyson a visit!

Has anyone ever asked Santa to bring a Pet Frog? Let's hope one hops onto Santa's sleigh this Christmas Eve. Great facial expressions from this bunch, Alex, Cooper, Chase and Jack!

Last year, Brad KC1JMH didn't have HF privileges, and Jordan could only listen to Santa. That night, Brad made it a goal to upgrade to General Class before Santa Net 2019. Well, sure enough, he upgraded and Jordan was able to talk to Santa this year. Thank you, Dad!
