We have peace of mind insurance if it becomes necessary to sustain minimum household power requirements for a time limited period. Our generator is not an indefinite option instead it can be used to fill the gap until local utilities restore power. I'm planning along the lines of an optimistic scenario. If it is an 'all else' fails then we will have to make lemonade out of lemons.
Ham radio is a great teacher of McGyver techniques.
Furthermore, I'm not capable of storing fuel over the long term or in any other capacity other than a 5 gallon container. There is an option of siphoning from our vehicle fuel tanks if, and only if, the crisis demands that type of response.
According to the owner's manual, gasoline oxidizes and deteriorates in storage and old gasoline clogs up the fuel system. Subsequently, degradation and oxidization can begin in less than 30 days depending on factors like quality of fuel and unit storage temperature.
It was explained to me to keep machinery operating and not let things sit idle for extended periods of time.
On the other hand, I purchased a Pelican 1400 case at a hamfest for my Yaesu FT100 and I'm grateful the company is perforating the foam. It is really tedious cutting away casing foam using a razor blade. It took about 30 minutes to completely remove the silhouette for the wireless set.
In the meantime, our Honda EU2000i opens new opportunity to explore locally and connect with our world using my Yaesu FT100 mobile transceiver and a Buddipole antenna system. Likewise, we have peace of mind insurance, at least temporarily, if a crisis demands emergency power at the home level. Lastly, if it is an 'all else' fails then Kimberly, Radio Dawg, and I will make lemonade out of lemons.
