Along with the rest of the world, life at AA6E has changed. Since March 19, 2020, most normal services at Evergreen Woods have been re-engineered to minimize exposure problems and to reduce the risk of infection from the outside world. Because we have assisted living and skilled nursing facilities, this becomes critical even for those of us in the "independent living" category.
The restrictions have tightened over the weeks to the point that no outside visitors are allowed and residents are strongly discouraged from traveling "off campus". Meals and miscellaneous supplies are delivered to your apartment by our wonderful community staff to the point that you really don't have to venture out, except for exercise.
It turns out that ham radio (and other home technology projects) aren't affected by pandemics. There is lots more activity on the radio bands than we might have expected, pre-pandemic. (In the before time.)
We hope to get out of the "lock down" in coming weeks or months, but until then we are coping. Stay well! See you on the bands?
