One thing that helps a lot is an external antenna, mag mount or on the
window or even through the glass. But if there are no signals, it is time
for as good book on cd/ipod

Did a 1000 mile road from my QTH to Kearney,NB and back yesterday. (glad I
don't do that often!)

I was really surprised to find out that there's virtually no APRS activity
in NB along I-80. I saw no stations being heard on the radio stn list (VX8)
and for awhile I thought my radio was broken! It wasn't  until I got back
into CO in the range of the mountains that I started seeing call signs in
the calls-heard list again.  I thought I would have heard at least a few
trackers on RVs, trucks or hams in general along I-80 but nothing?  Grand
Island was the only object heard/seen. Sure glad to be back in CO where
there's plenty APRS activity! Or so it appears?
