This afternoon, Andy M0VKG announced he wanted to head out and do some /P from his car, so I went along.

He had four contacts 20m on PSK31 with his FT897D and associated gear on the dashboard, as can be seen below.

We were only out for an hour or so and only 10mins from our QTH, but I was surprised how quick it was to set up and take apart.

Sometime soon, I’ll get my car geared up for radio and take my Icom IC-706 MkIIG out for some portable or mobile.
