Subject: [amsat-bb]  "Mobile" Operation

I've heard conflicting things, so I'd like to see what the consensus is


Since my rig is mounted in my car, I've been told I should say "mobile" when

ever I attempt a QSO. Some of the reasoning is that others will understand

my "limitations" and try to work me. On occasion, this seems to have been

the case.

Others have told me that I should only use "mobile" when the vehicle is

actually in motion.

What say you all?
