As fas as Field Day is concerned, I believe it is (was) OK for stations
to operate mobile or even from home, as long as they don't work the
station they will be operating from, or that they have operated from.
But, thinking about it further, what about a Novice/Tech operator who
operates the Novice/Tech station at Field Day ... and later sits down
and operates on VHF or HF using the "regular" Field Day callsign?  Kind
of defeats the purpose to expose newcomers to contesting and emergency
communications (gotta get that in there ... FD is NOT a contest!). Will
have to read over the new rules (Dec. 1997 QST) a bit closer, to see if
they address this.

Look for us as WB4NJV (+K4KBP) 3A June 27-28!
