FLASH NEWS !
New anti virus Lysol HF filter effective on on Straight Keys now available, other models for Paddles, Bugs and Sideswipers coming soon to a 7/11 near you..........
Asking price $29,000 but negotiable.
I understand your concerns but if you are over 70 you probably have lived through much, much worse than this event is and did not even know it because MEDIA was not in your face.
Take a deep breath, exhale.......

I so much want to be able to attend the 4S event but connections from Florida in any manner do not seem to work at all and it’s a very long drive when I have to come back and then go to Minnesota !
All that aside, IMHO this “problem” has been blown way out of proportion to reality, yes if you are already in bad shape PLEASE TAKE PRECAUTIONS but otherwise it does not seem to be more than a bad cold for 80% of us.
Please don’t overreact, just wash your hands like your mother said and you’ll be OK.
This is 2020 not 1918 !

May, approximately 2 months away. Lots can happen in 2 months.Indeed. Some thought is that if this thing could grow exponentiallythat there could be 8 million active cases in the US by mid-May. If,again there is that two letter word, 10% require hospitalization,healthcare will be strained just by this virus alone, not to mentioneverything else they handle. I note this not to cause alarm, but to say that everyone needs todetermine for themselves where the line between prudence and panic liesand act accordingly. A week ago I was promoting and planning onattending the Nebraska ARRL convention and hamfest in Lincoln, NE thiscoming Saturday. By Monday I was having some second thoughts and as theweek wore on I was becoming more hesitant to the point that this morningI had mostly decided not to go. That decision became moot when theevent was postponed until Halloween shortly after noon today.My hesitation wasn't so much a concern for my own health as even thoughI'm 56 I've no underlying health issues that concern others. My concernwas possibly unwittingly transmitting the virus to others. That may yetstill happen but it will only happen as a result of all of us in thelocal community going about our daily business and life. That won't makethe illness any more pleasant!I commend Bob for making his decision with the best availableinformation at hand. Despite not having conferences, conventions, orhamfests for a while, we radio amateurs are blessed that we not onlyhave the Internet, but the entirety of amateur radio to stay in touchand continue to play with safe in the knowledge that we can' transmitthe disease by doing so.At some point there will be a sense of normalcy. Of that I am certain.72, Nate-- "The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of allpossible worlds.
