True.  If you were a hard core SOTA type, you might also have $200 hiking boots.

Problems at a major "privacy first!" mail service reported, along with commentary on the weakness of centralized ongoing procedures:  https://brushbeater.wordpress.com/2018/11/28/unseen-is-outage-all-your-eggs-in-one-basket/

An article about an NYU professor making odd claims that the FCC changing the current HF baud rate limits has national security implications: https://brushbeater.wordpress.com/2018/12/06/article-proposed-fcc-ruling-may-hurt-national-security/ 
Like I said, odd stuff.

Next up, something a little more practical, an article about a marginal improvement over the venerable G5RV: https://brushbeater.wordpress.com/2018/12/11/johnnymac-sends-a-true-multi-band-antenna/   
Hm, you're going to need a tuner either way, so I don't see this as a big deal.  Maybe an advantage if you have a long coax run or something.  Meh, it it's going to get this complicated just give me a random wire.

Anyway, it's good to see activity over at brushbeater.

This might be my favorite - https://www.americanpartisan.org/2018/11/writing-a-tactical-soi/

The title caught my eye, SOI has a couple meanings and the first that comes to my mind when I see it is Signal Of Interest.  The example authentication challenge between Apache and Cherokee certainly qualifies as that, especially on the frequencies listed.  Hearing that exchange would pique anyone's curiosity, better to take a "when in Rome" approach based on the frequencies|bands you're on I'd think.  Scott and Bob talking about whose turn it is to buy lunch or if they forgot the toolbox on Red|Yellow Dot maybe.  The best coded messages are the ones nobody even recognizes as being coded after all, or that's what I've heard anyway.

Yeah cidyl, that's a top-notch article, one I keep revisiting.

The best coded messages are the ones nobody even recognizes as being coded after all,
There are both deep information theory truths and practical pointers in that statement.
