[VHFcontesting] Rovers and multi rigs

Database? Not that I know of.

Speaking as a former rover -- first, consider that mobiling up and down 
mountains on fire roads beats the crap out of whatever you use. Radio, 
vehicle, driver, etc.  Don't get me wrong, it's great fun -- but the 
economics of repair needs to figure in here. My advice is to get moderate 
priced, rugged radios and go have fun with them.  My cost metric: if this 
radio died a spectacular death during a full-up rove, would it a) make my 
cry, b) make a hilarious war story at the next club meeting?

YMMV -- "Your Mountains May Vary"

73, Dave N6NZ

Oh yeah, a propeller-head comment: An overload resistant front-end is 
pretty much a must.
