Default What a Find!

I ran across this forum doing a search for ham radio and travel trailers.

I am looking to add radio capability to my Trailmanor, mainly for emergency use. I'm sure, however, that it will require regular testing. After all, this is Florida and hurricane season will be here before you know it!

73,

Don -- KA4HHM

Welcome, Don. You'll find we're an opinionated lot, but cordially opinionated for the most part.

Where in Florida? Your callsign isn't in the ARRL data base yet. Oops -- yes it is, I entered it wrong. You're in Keystone Heights. I have friends near you, in Melrose. At the moment I'm in Clermont, and will go to Tallahassee in May and North Carolina in June.

Get an extension cord and put a blender out in the yard. margaritas and daiquiris for the grown ups. Slushies for the kids.

Say, can you hold the snow until June?

THat is what I like about Upstate SC below 1,000 feet.

THe low (Annual) hardly ever drops into the teens. (hit 11 this year)
And the hurricanes usually only hit the EAST end of the state. SO I'm close enough to lend aid, but not to get blown away... Though we do get strong winds.. They are not Hurricane force by a long shot They are either slower and wide spread (Took out one car port here in the park, a few tree limbs) or faster and very local (Tornado, which so far have spared this park,, But have cut a path half way between where I'm at and where I sing in the choir).
