Default Mobile Operations Photo

Would you believe my wife complains about riding in the truck with me ? Wonder why ?

Actually it's not mine. A ham posted this photo on one of the local reflectors.

I see at least one molex power connector hanging out in space, and none of the radios seem to be mounted or lit up.

Me thinks it be a joke! But a good one!

Not lit up because be probably stalled the engine by overloading the alternator and blew a fuse.

Thought that shot is most likely a joke (nobody would leave thousands of dollars worth of radios just sitting there less it was very well guarded)

I have seen a few "Rolling porcupines" (Vehicles with more antenna than a procupine has quills)

I know a Ham here in Mexifornia, that has almost the same in his Lincoln and it really does have an antenna farm on the roof and trunk lid.
I really think that picture is joke.

Someone rear ends this guy and it could be fatal for him. Even at a low speed he wouldn't escape injury.
