   W5OMR (Bigfoot) has been running 75M.A.M. mobile for years
  down here in TX.
   Sent me some pics of his present mobile rig, a Johnson
  Viking II hooked to a honkin' inverter in his Ford F150
  truck.
   Goeff is a "hotshot" driver, so most of his radio time
  is mobile.
   I listen for him every morning on 3.880.
   Have also talked to Sammy(W5DPP) mobile on A.M., so it's
  not totally extinct.HI
   Guess I need to look for an AF-68 or something?
     AD5HR, Jon
       p.s.  listen for K0CXX, Bill. He has a 20-v3 with
             Buck Owens' original 1950's audio set-up from
             his first A.M  station in Bakersfield, sounds
             GREAT. Check him out on QRZ, quite the Collins
             collector
