Just found this forum and very excited about reading all the posts. I very rarely run into another amatuer in my travels and this will be a wondeful way to disuss ideas/problems etc.

There are plenty of Hams in RV's. you can find a bunch of them, in oh, about 2.5 weeks, about 5 or six miles south of I-10 on the west side of SR-95 in Arizona. Alas, I won't be there this year. However I've found them out and about by looking for license plates

And of course when I put up my flag pole,,, With the night light on top (Kind of a joke, single LED lamp, you can ALMOST see it from the ground at night) I get a lot of door knockers Flag pole carries 3 VHF/UHF antennas too

I'm new here also, see you out on the road some day.
I am now trying to figure what type of Screw driver to use on my class-c.
Been really leaning towrds a High Sierra Set up. Maybe get a sidekick and mount it to the ladder. But make it so I can use it at home also.

Roger, we were at Thousand Trails in Orlando last week and there were two other hams in the same block I parked in. They are out there. Put the antenna up and they will find you. License plates with your call sign help too.

Welcome aboard Roger.

I haven't seen too many hams in RVs yet but only get on the road a few weeks a year so far.

73,

Ed

This is not exactly Ham Radio related but in a way it is.

For several years when I went camping for the weekend (At least 10 years) I pulled a 13' SCAMP trailer. In all those years I never saw another. Finally, in 2005, I pulled it up to General RV, unhooked it, got in a Class A motor home (Brand New Damon Intruder 377W) and suddenly every time I hit the road with the RV, there is another Scamp.

One of those (I think the 1st or 2nd one I saw) had a large sign in the rear window with the owner's callsign on it.. Tried to call them but alas, they were not listening to 146.52

Like the Scamp trailers.. They are out there.. I don't know why I suddenly see Scamps all over but I have had people call me while on the road It helps if you have multiple radios so you can leave one on 146.52 or if you have a plate (Such as I had on my old Apache) that lists the frequencies you monitor Soon as I get everything the way I want it on the MH, that plate will make the trip to the Damon
