Best wishes in 2014 from EuMA

The European Microwave Association sent to all members their greetings and best wishes for coming New 2014 Year. Balls are so traditional that no Christmas can do without them. But they shouldn’t be all alike – the idea to use Smith chart for Christmas balls makes this card original, memorable and exclusive. Thank you.
