For what it's worth, I just looked at the original poster's (W4GRY) qrz page, last edited a couple of months ago, and it says he's disabled and lives in a retirement community that forbids outdoor antennas.
Let's hope Jerry is able to get out an operate in a park or has some close ham friends that will invite him over to operate at their QTH's.
A lot can happen in 3 months! My uncle lived in a mobile home for 20 years running a dipole. After inheriting several million, his new digs are a McMansion on 12 acres, and every antenna under the sun!
