I didn't say don't stockpile ammo. After what happened during the Great Ammo Shortage you'd be foolish not to load up. But emergency food, emergency ammo, emergency anything by definition means that you have more than you need. Unless you're in combat you will not shoot more than a couple of hundred zombies during armageddon. Isn't there like a personal rapture that occurs after you've killed the 50th zombie?

Is anyone planning anything for Field Day this year? The NJ clubs are limited to at-home operating. I'm thinking of going up to Stokes or High Point. Anyone is welcome to join me but be forwarned: I will NOT be social distancing or wearing a mask. I'd also be interested in joining a club that is holding a normal FD without the infection fetish. I hung out with some hams at the Matamoras gun range a few years back, I think it was FD 2016, and it was enjoyable.

Operating from home, sadly, as the wuhan flu bugaboo has struck.  Currently using FD ops as an incentive to get a Gap Titan up here at home.

She is fine with it. 

And the HOA 'rulz' say "Accessory Structures - Antennas - No restrictions for antennas attached to home."

Will look like this when complete:

With that loophole in place, see if you can get Verizon or ATT to put up a cell tower attached to your home.   You can pull down a fair bit of rent from a cell tower on your property.  Pissing off the HOA is a nice bonus.

That is VERY nice. How difficult will it be to hoist it into position?
