Mobile Stations

Introduction

Hams have been putting stations in their cars since the Twenties (1920's that is). Today, there is great satisfaction in facing the challenge of installing a transceiver in our cars and pick-ups, using inefficient antennas, and still being able to make contacts with hams thousands of miles away while "tooling" down the highway. Another need for mobile operation is for those facing antenna restrictions in their homes. A mobile station will allow them access to choice locations such as hill tops from which to pursue their hobby.
