More 28MHz mobile fun

Conditions seem to have been pretty good on 10m over the last day or two. Yesterday, as I was driving back from the convention the band was buzzing! I concentrated on 29MHz AM and was interested to hear N4ZED coming in from Georgia. I called but although Ken could hear a G there he wasn’t able to pull me out. Hardly surprising given my low power. I was surprised he heard anything at all,

This evening AM was quiet as I was heading home, but the SSB portion was lively. I managed a quick fire contact with K8CW which I was happy with, running 10W or so to the whip.
