My first attempt at amateur radio
mobile operation came back in the summer of 1967. Using a Heathkit HW-12A and a HP-13
mobile power supply (both of which I assembled) along with a RM-75 Hustler mounted on a
MO-2 54 fold-over mast, I was able to make many contacts on 75 meters
while on the road. Sure wish I had that 67 Dodge Dart now! As you can see from the photos,
it was a basic station but it worked quite well for me. After that car was sold, I
discontinued mobile operation and would not get back into it again until 2005.
