I've never really read a lot about how people handle mobile logging when they work HF mobile, so I figured I'd share what I do! I read this tip a while back, in a home magazine, because a reader said they used it to make notes so they wouldn't forget things when they got a phone call while driving. I heard it and went, "hey! I can use that to keep track of my contacts while mobile!"
Basically, I write down my contacts, and then type them into an app on my phone when I get home or when I get to my destination. The method I use to write them down is the unique part...a good old dry erase marker! This way I can write on the windshield while still looking through it, so I can scribble notes without taking my eyes off the road. After I'm parked and punch them into my phone, I just grab the eraser and wipe the slate clean!
I had a bunch of contacts on my recent drive home from Boston, partly because the 13 Colonies event was starting...here's what my windshield looked like by the time I got home...
Catch you down the log!

Welcome to my Ham Radio Blog! This blog was started primarily to share my two concurrent shack builds - my mobile station and my home station. Over time, this has grown to include sharing about my operations, and general radio-related thoughts that I have as a newer operator.
This has grown to be a small network of Ham-Radio Shows - check out all of them!
100 Watts and Wire is an awesome community, based around an excellent podcast.
Curtis covers different topics each episode, which always keeps it interesting!
