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.
