I spent a couple of early afternoon hours working OH stations from the mobile while parked on the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC.? Forty meter signals had rapid QSB and sometimes would fade before the QSO was completed.? The signals on 20 were too weak to work.? KW8N was loud all the time.? K8MR/R was loud when he put up the rover antenna.? N0H/QRP was louder than 50% of the OH stations.? K8DV took the most?calls to work as he couldn't seem to copy my mobile signal.? Finally when he got fairly loud, he could finally hear me.? I think the OH stations had trouble hearing each other as it seemed like several would be calling on one CW frequency with no idea there were other OH stations there.John Getz, AD8J/M
