Operating mobile may be the only option to some who are burdened with heavy 
CC&R antenna monkeys on their backs.  Couple this with more Contesters dying 
off every year and not much new blood coming in to replace them, IMHO the Rules 
should be changed *** IMMEDIATELY *** to permit mobile operation(s).  *** 
DEFINITELY *** before 15m & 10m (hopefully) come to life again!!!
