Got any funny disaster stories? Mine: My last outing was my first attempt at rover operations for my state QSO party. Things were going well, about 90 minutes in I began moving to find a drink to buy (lesson 1: bring a cooler). I drove around for a few minutes; the rig on the dash, the laptop on the passenger seat. I found my drink and went to find a new spot. I took left turn and... The rig slid off the dash, bounced off the passenger seat, hit the door and eventually hit the floor. I reached for it but it was too fast and too heavy. So I parked and took hold of the coax - pulled it up and saw it was cut, no longer connected to the rig. At the rig, the coax connector was still in the radio but the wire was cut right at the end of the PL259. Thus ended my day. I had a few basic tools but nothing to re-wire a PL-259, and no spares. I don't really know yet if the rig is all OK but it powers up. Lesson: don't leave the "expensive thing" sitting high on the dash, not secured in any way, when I begin to move.
