|How many Hams are also RVers? We bought an RV in June 2012 and have put about 14,000 mile on it since. Last summer I finally found a rig and antenna system that seems to work quite well.
There are several (2) RV nets on the air and probably most check-in's belong to the ARRL. I found these nets by accident.
It would be nice to feature the world of RVing and as I like to say, "Ham Radio On the Go." A forum and an article in QST would be a nice place to start.
For instance, last week we "dry" camped at an old plantation mansion ground between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. There was almost no line noise and the bands were open. Many RV parks are also quite rural and it is a pleasure to get away from a high line noise area. I'm lovin' it.
All the best &
