Its pretty simple here at this QTH. UPS delivers to a pallet mill that is
on the opposite side of the highway any packages that are addressed to me.
Fed Ex puts packages in a waterproof bag and hangs them on a fence post at a
road gate on top of the hill, as they won't drive down a steep hill to
deliver at the house. An inconvenient location, well kind of, but no
neighbors to complain about antennas etc.
