|Good advice above. One advantage of attaching the connectors yourself is that you can get away with drilling a much smaller hole through your wall, particularly if you use RG8X.

|Just 1B KS. You'll specify "Battery" when you submit your entry.|

|My friend Lee KK4JSJ has earned DXCC running digital modes at QRP levels from his apartment. Check out his profile on QRZ.com. I'm sure he would be willing to share his experiences with you.|

|That's because this particular event is called Field Day, not Home Day! :-)
Seriously, the rules for Field Day have been set up to encourage portable/field participation using emergency power sources. Awarding points for home/home contacts made using normal commercial power entirely defeats this purpose. This would be analogous to, for example, allowing credit for NY <> FL contacts during the California QSO Party.
Don't forget about class E. Disconnect your rig from your A/C power supply and run it from a battery or generator, and you'll get credit for every station you work!

|I use Chrome with the Flashcontrol plug-in, so this is a non-issue for me.|
