Another good mobile cw day

This afternoon I was downstairs playing with the radios and noticed that 20 meters was wide open to Europe, with lots of stations coming in. I worked a couple, but then thought “I wonder how it would be from the mobile.

Last week was a busy week and I never drove the car to Rockford, so I never have had any operating time with the new control head setup. So I went out in the car, headed west on I 88 and tuned around 20 meters. I answered a DL (Germany) CQ, did a short contact, signed, and had a pileup calling me. In the next 20 minutes I probably worked 10 different stations, but I didn’t have scratch paper with me, so I have no log of it. After a while I turned around to come home, then realized I had the little logger on my iPhone. I made one more contact after that, with Guatamala, and managed to get it logged.

Oh well, it was a blast having all the EU stations calling me. I’m really, really impressed with the Little Tarheel antenna.
