Hi Bob,
congrats on your new mobile setup. I also get excited every time when I
manage to get a sat QSO from my mobile (FT-8900 + mag whip currently). There
is usually one or two good orbits about the time when I try leave my job in
the afternoon so every now and then I try to make few qsos from my car on
the top floor of the parking building of my office. Bit hard to explain my
collagues why I have to be in my car within few minutes time window, to talk
to someone over radio ;)
