You’ll want to keep it in a well-ventilated area and have a CO2 detector nearby. It’s also equipped with a low oxygen sensor that will shut it off if O2 drops below a safe level.
Hope that helps!
I’m in the “significant impact” belt and glad we’ve prepped as much as we have while of course also lamenting the gaps. Our power lines are buried so I’m hoping our power won’t go out, but of course they may need to shut it down anyway to repair other lines. Ultimately, we should be okay as we have plenty of shelf-stable food, a Big Buddy with fuel, a butane burner, lots of potable water and a creek out back and filters and purifying tablets in case that runs out. Lots of light sources and solar charging panels and power banks which should keep our devices going.
So why am I so anxious? Ha!
Until the next variant.
Simply capitulating seems like madness to me, considering new hospitalization records are being set. Milder? Great! But it’s infecting a ton more people, which means it still puts a huge strain on healthcare.
It feels like everyone is simply tired and giving up.
The new cases line on my state’s graph has gone absolutely vertical. More than 15,000 in the most recent update. I’m keeping my @ss at home for the foreseeable future. (I’m well aware that not everyone has that luxury and grateful that I do).
Oh, no. I am so very sorry, Stephanie.
Thank you for these blog posts, Stephanie. They’re always filled with information. And Happy Thanksgiving!
My state is exploding. Yesterday was a record high of new infections (nearly 5,000!) and the day before that was a record high. Percentage of those testing positive is steadily climbing, too, and currently at 8.9% 7 day average. And it’s barely November! Winter is going to be bad. We are keeping our butts home regardless of the holidays. I don’t particularly want to spread disease to those I love, so we will visit virtually and look forward to next year being better.
Good luck to all of us…
Well, that was a depressing read.
Thanks! Everything I’ve read till now stated the ham test must be done in person. I’ll check this out!
I got my GMRS license in July because I’m not going to take the in-person HAM tech test during the pandemic. I wish I’d done it before, but hindsight is always 20/20.
We’ve been able to hit repeaters from out of state using the Midland MicroMobile, using only the antenna it’s bundled with.
