Us Texans are natively equipped to handle these kind of temperatures so my
designation of "Summer of 100 Degree Passes" was intended for our friends in
more northern climates. You guys in the southwest have that "dry heat" HI
The essentials for any summer time remote operations here:
#1 Mosquito repellant
#3 A large-brimmed hat of breathable material (usually goofy-looking and a
perfect fit for nerdy hams)
At least there's one good thing about LEO's for us summer, portable folks:
You don't need to be outside very long to work the whole pass.
