N1MM is looking at improving their rover/mobile implementation.  If any of
the mobile ops would like to comment (even if you are not an N1MM user), I
can forward your comments to the N1MM reflector.  The N1MM users who have
responded so far have been contest specific.

The developers have additional questions below and need your input to make
decisions based on the contest operation requirements. Please respond via
the reflector so all developers can read your replies.
John, K3CT

When operating as a rover or mobile in contests, how long are you operating
in a county or grid before it is necessary to configure the program for the
next county/grid?

Are there any contests that allow boundary operation that require the rover
or mobile station to log multiple contacts for each station worked? If so,
what contest?

How do other stations expect you to communicate the multiple contacts? Two
exchanges? Slashes between location designators?

When operating on county or grid lines, what percent of the time would you
estimate is it:
2 counties/grids?
3 counties/grids?
4 counties/grids?

Does the mobile/rover station get one QSO for a county/grid line QSO or one
for each county/grid?

Do the contests you operate allow multiple contacts per cabrillo line, or
must QSO's from rover/mobile show one cabrillo line per county/grid?

Besides the QSO parties, ARRL VHF/UHF, and CQ VHF contests what other
contests require rover/mobile support?
