I've run a Viking II mobile, but never entertained the thought of a 
DX-100 mobile :-)

The problem with operating mobile, is not generating the signal - that 
can be done easily enough.

The problem with operating mobile, is dealing with the NOISE!  Power 
lines, DC motors, other vehicles, industrial parks, fluorescent/neon 
lights... GAHH!  NOISE!  And, of course, in AM detection mode, the noise 
is amplified, unless the station is 40db/S-9

Generating a signal is all well and good, but operating ain't no good if 
your 100w is being heard, but you can't hear anyone else :-(
