@freemo there are plenty of people with LESS time.
e.g. full time job working from home + children to care for (who would otherwise be at school during the day)
Anyone for a qso?
2.4GHz is around 50% of 5GHz, but I'd still not put my head in a microwave oven. (and would have no worries about my laptop using 5GHz WiFi.)
Signal power is a more significant issue for rf burns than frequency, and those don't happen at any meaningful distances.
@GwenfarsGarden if you have a slow cooker this one isn't too hard

Furry, fursuit, inflatable
@vertigo oh sorry, is there something else I should have asked about?
I can't see anything else that needs justifying!
Your tree explanation makes sense, good to know you enjoy it 🎄
Hmm. Thrown up a 20m aerial and all I can hear are contest stations, but at least I can hear them!
Let me know if you would like to try a sked on 20m!
I need to fix the aerial if I want 40m
