      Set the bug up for 27 wpm,, use Loctite medium, and if possible put the bug on a bench type seat so that the bug is about 45 degrees rotated from the line of the driver to the windshield.  You can often see Don Wallace W6AM (sk) using his bug mobile in this type position.

        I've also used a bug myself mobile (from a car, not a ship) - but also on a ship - but you guy's weren't asking about ship mobile, I'm sure.

        Actually I never had a problem with turns because almost all of my operating was on straight aways - when you worked me mobile in an automobile, I'd sometimes have "not on the air" moments - this is because (and I believe rightly so) that operation of the vehicle took precedence over operation of the radio set.

              I think this falls under the heading "needless to say".  All the folks I know who operate mobile are very conscious of their responsibility to operate the vehicle as their first priority.  Being a professional driver I'm sure Earl is MORE than conscious of that responsibility.
