Just for info to Johan and Stefan :
WOW ! Yes I rember the experiments of Dave G3YXM. My first
QSO with him on 2 way or x-band 137 CW was 1999/05/15, now 16 years ago ! After
I had some others including a cross band one at 2000/12/30 when he was QSY in
Also, I was listening at his signal when he was trying his
mobile antenna. He made a few successfull QSO but at low distance, and nothing
heard on my side at 500 km ! HI. It was true mobile... The very old users of the
LF band remember that. HI !
But it was easy, because in the years 1999 / 2003, when I was
QRV CW on LF (250 Watts and a large Inv L), each saturday morning after a CQ we
got 5 to 10 QSO. The activity was important. Now try that, and perhaps you get
one QSO per month ? HI.

G3YXM was mobile on 136kHz many years ago. See http://www.wireless.org.uk/mobile.htm
, scroll down to middle of page.
If it is possible on 136kHz then it
should be a piece of cake on 475 :-)
Hmm, i find
someone should do a real mobile (mobile-mobile, with a velocity > 0)
