The Dawn of a New Era? How after the ChiCom Plague we will never go back again – Part 5 – Full Ham Edition
My last post in this series discussing the paradigm shifts in our lives brought on by the ChiCom Plague, but with a particular focus on Amateur Radio.
The paradigm shifts I covered in posts 1, 2, 3 and 4, that appear they will stay with us once the ChiCom Plague virus is thwarted are (in italic to show they were already covered):
- Accelerated Change on multiple Axis
- Risk Analysis of Social Contacts
- Risk Analysis of Group Meetings (Starving the Monkeys)
- Travel vs Teleconference
- Supply Chain Robustness
- Distrust of the MSM and other public voices with an agenda
- Increase in Personal Preparedness
- Two-is-One, One-is-None mentality as the new norm
- Unmaintainable generics vs Sustainable Brand options
- Exotics vs Field-Maintainable Equipment
- The Death of JIT (Just in Time) logistics
- Education Reform
- The Kennedy Reality (Ask not..)
But what about ham radio? (Listed in Bold to match the other posts):
- The Hamfest has taken a forever hit
- Boat Anchors and Used Gear will have polarized values
- One-Man-Band Equipment Providers will be Challenged
- Did Big Group Field Day just die for 2020 or did it go the way of the Dodo?
- What happens to Club Meetings?
- Supply Chain Issues Favor Domestic Production
