    My EOC is at the PD about 10 miles away; I live in the suburbs. I’m lucky I have a GMRS repeater right here in town a few miles away. There’s another one across the sound on the Bogue Pier. XYL doesn’t give a hoot about ham radio but in a SHTF she can use my GMRS license. GMRS is simple enough for people like her who aren’t tech savvy to just push the button and talk.

    I made a GMRS J-pole from 1/2 copper and added it to my past in the back yard and it outperforms the rubber duck on the HT dramatically.

    All my pals wanted one so I ended up building several.
