ARGH!  Got a rental car and was miles out of the airport when I finally got
the APRS plugged in.



And of course, the 12v DC cigarette outlet was dead!  Too late to drive
back and insit on a new car.

Lesson relearned for travelers:



1)      Carry some spare mini fuses of the 10A variety  (Both kinds)

2)      Or carry a 6’ clip lead cord to the battery

3)      DON’T LEAVE THE RENTAL PLACE without testing the outlet first!
