That is what I do too George.

On the road I tether the phone (Well turn it into a hot spot, Works better than tethering on this computer).

During the summer both of the parks I frequent have Wi-Fi. of varying quality. In the winter one of 'em has wi-fi good enough to stream video on Wed's after 9pm (The only time of the week I wish to do that so though it likely works as well at other times I'll never know cause I've no motive to know).

The other park has rock solid 4G on the phone.

Put power on the old TS-530S. Seems the microphone has died while in storage, or that's what I'm hoping, considering the other alternatives. Anyway progress continues and I'll keep the photos coming as I get projects complete. Cheers KL7IEK - George

Well KL7IEK RV is up and on-the-air. Maybe I'll try the 7191 net in the morning. Cheers and 73's.

There are a couple of nets for RVers in fact, one is the RV service net and another is the RV-net, one is on 40 meters around 8pm eastern as I recall, sorry do not have the frequency handy at this operating station but I can look it up or given the time (Every night by the way) you can likely find it easily enough. Not so many RV nets on 75/80 as mobile/portable antennas tend to slough off at longer wavelengths.

Batteries wend dead on the KB or the other laptop I have here, Spares stored next to TS-2000,,, Memory (TS-2000's) says 7265 KHz for that RV net.

Digital memories are very handy some days.. (I have not yet copied the radio to this computer or I could have looked it up here.. Strange the batteries going dead in that wireless KB today.... I bought spare batteries.... YESTERDAY!!!! Something is clearly not working as Murphy planned.
