Doing the 10M contest while driving to K5NA/2 to pick up some antennas a few
years back made the trip go fast. CW worked best and was no problem. The
cup holders in the center console of some vehicles (mine was/is a '91 Ford
F-150 pickup) hold a Bencher keyer paddle perfectly without velcro, tape, or
anything else to hold it down. Logging was the hardest part.
One local who lived in a townhouse with no antennas allowed ran coax out to
his car parked in the parking lot and fed a KW into the mobile antenna. He
was getting a corona flame off the top of the antenna. Remember when KC3VO
had that in the Yaesu booth at Dayton?
