You're talking a whole different ball of wax there.  I usually participate 
as a QRP-portable in the VHF contests.  There is no such thing as a 
QRP-portable entry in most HF contests.

I manage to cram equipment and antennas for 10 bands into a Toyota 
Corolla, plus tables, chairs, lanterns, food, etc.  I can't fit the world 
into that tiny car so I log on paper (no computer, which produces excess 
drain on the batteries anyway).

I could record the contest but sometimes I'm sitting there for a half hour 
or more between QSO's when the bands are really dead.  That should make 
for lively listening! Well, maybe the passing tractors, birds and the 
occasional wild animal fight nearby might liven things up.  :-)

I'm sure Rovers run into the same thing. Lots of engine noise to listen
