MAY the THIRD be with YOU?
OK - so we had "May the 4th be with you..."
Then we had "May the 5th be with you..."
Now we have MAY the 3rd and it doesn't go Poetically
with anything, except the safety and legality of your shack.
Checking your RF Exosure based on your equipment and
other factors, which we have all done before...is
no longer a "nice to do" thing.
Its mandatory. Its law.
If you didn't know about the change in
the law that became effective May 3, 2023.
