Yea - I think I'd go crazy after hearing that cw tape blasting all weekend - hi.

That antenna stall I think was WD4BUM - I think he is there every year -
good stuff. What kind of mag mount did you get -one of those gigantic ones
to hold the 30 meter hamstick? Can you drive with it? One of my cars (the
one my wife has) I went ahead and installed a Hustler ball mount on the left
rear side panel and it has always worked well. I now have my wifes Nissan
station wagen on the job here in Newfoundland and I am thinking of drilling
a hole and mounting a ball mount there but I keep thinking that maybe I
should just buy a heavy duty mag mount or one of those fancy heavy duty
Diawa type gutter/rear hatch mounts. Any ideas?
