Aside from making progress as an SO2R newbie, my biggest thrill of SS was 
working Jim, N3BB, when he was mobile in TN.  A bit of QSB on the signal, 
but good strength.

The last time I worked Jim mobile he was running 1w from his vehicle in 
Texas and I was "portable" up in Sonora, CA, running 5w to a BuddiPole 8 
feet off the ground.

Regarding mobile logging vs. non-logging, how about a small digital 
recorder with lotsa memory to record everything and then transcribe it from 
a home QTH?

Hmm...how about maybe adding a new "Mobile" category to SS?

Just kidding, of course.
