Jim,

What is happening is that all that RF you've been putting up the stack has
had an adverse effect on the magnetic fields on the mag mount which has
de-sterilized the rotation of the earth, which has caused the rf waves to
bounce away from your car, which has caused you to going back to drinking
coffee out of your no-spill Mr. Donut cup, which means someone is telling
you to concentrate on your driving and quit trying to defeat the laws of
nature by sending cw while you are driving. IS THAT CLEAR (words from above).

Caio Bob VO1DRB/WA6ERB

PS: You need one of those mag mounts with three giant frizbie sized magnets
on it so that when you hit a tree branch with the antenna it flips the car
over..

PPS: Do it right - go drill that hole on the drivers side rear quarter
panel and mount a decent ball mount - forget resale - once they find out
that you've been driving that thing while operating cw they'll know that the
transmission is shot, the engines ready to blow etc. no ones going to ant
that car anyway.
