    It is interesting to see the amount of PPE that appears to be required while operating amateur radio equipment. For years, we have known that high visibility vests are a requirement:


    However, a recent ARRL posting shows that hard hats are also important:

    What PPE do you wear while operating amateur radio?

    I am wearing it in my Avatar, my tinfoil lightning protection hat. Only thing missing is the cold aluminum Budweiser can in my right hand for arthritis.Did anyone tell those guys if they setup the ops table off the street, they would not need the highway safety vest?

    Magic underwear from a Mormon friend. Button snap at the bottom so I can change diapers.
