We just drove a rented 2008 Kia Sedona van 3,000 miles round-trip
over 10 days from FL to NH running a Yaesu FT-857D into an ATAS-100
screwdriver antenna with no problems 100W 40-6M.

It was the low-end model van from Enterprise and I had to tighten-up a
lot of screws in the doors and seat handles prior to the trip but it
otherwise held-up well to the RF and the intense travel stress (two
adults and three children, wide variations in temperature and from
continuous hours of high highway speeds to hours in stop & go I-95
traffic in NY/NJ).

The only anomaly noted was a low-level clock pulse on 20M, apparently
injected at the DC tap I made at the fuse panel.


Thanks! & 73, doc, KD4E
