Guess this isnt related to contesting... Noone ever works
from their car.
When I lived in Colorado, I did a few contests (Wyoming QSO
Party, CQP [same weekend] and SS) from my van with mobile
antennas (Hustler, Hamstick, and Pro-Am Valor). Rig was a
TS120, computer a Compaq "luggable," powered by a 2kW
generator. However, I will admit I was stationary in a
parking lot in the Curt Gowdy State Park between Laramie and
Cheyenne. I also did a CQP from the Sierra/Nevada county
line. Unfortunately, I could not find a good operating
location and worked only one station--VY1JA (he was 20dB
over S9). Only time VY1 called me!
I hear a few mobiles in contests. The two are not mutually
Hope the antenna works for your friend.
