    Impending rain preventing you from putting up a dipole?  You whiny little pantywaist!  Why, when I was your age, I put antennas up when it was 70 below zero and a forty-five mile an hour blizzard!  And I didn't even have gloves...coudn't afford 'em.  Or shoes! Hifalutin' waste of leather. 
    Not only that, but I had to make my very own wire.  Do you know how many pennies you have to CHEW in order to make an 80 meter dipole?
    Boy, these kids sure have it soft today.  "Impending rain"  Eeeesh!

    impeding rain keeping me from field operating...I don't particularly appreciate sitting out in a lawnchair getting soaked while the 600$ radio crackles and smokes ;)

    rain? some ham
    it would take lightning to keep me from the antenna work, and even if it was .5 miles away, my philosophy is "well, it still didn't hurt me!"
    lol
