Mobil with a Maestro

Rick- K2RBRick- K2RB Member ✭✭
I have successfully started using my Maestro in my car and it brings home station performance to the road.  With improvements in coverage from hot spots I have found that reliability has improved to the point of acceptability.  I recently changed carriers and it was suggested I might like a hot spot.  The bells started ringing and sure enough I have found a new use for my Flex Radio Station.  Plugging the Maestro into the 12 volts of the car allows me to preserve battery life and the hot spot gives me good wifi.  Nothing like running 800 or 900 watts from the car and pointing a three element in the direction of the station working.  Of course paying attention to the road is the most important thing you can do, but this expansion has just made my enjoyment of my Flex that much more rewarding.

    just founding what carrier... I was thinking of using my cellphone as a hot spot and doing this. I believe my friend tried this also but it didnt work work to well. But using an ipad worked better. But this goes back to the carrier and coverage.
