Packet seems to have perked up this last week or two. Some interesting
topics have emerged as opposed to the usual hyperbole and posturing.

I can remember seeing piccys of motobike mobiles in books years ago,sporting
144MHz halo antennas for SSB. People had an adventurous spirit in those days.

That's what they thought about trolley mobile, now others are doing it.

In the same spirit, I'm posting a piccy called M3HWX-P.JPG for some

As for M0PZT, perhaps the RSGB's Mobile Radio Handbook might provide some

to reading about your successes.
