ANyone have experience with 5 watts on the Capital limited and Empire
Builder AMTRAK routes, DC to Minneapolis?

My 5 watts was abysmal from DC to Connecticut (a few hits in 6 hours), so I
guess I should pack a 25 watt Amp?
with antenna taped in the window.  I have a month til I go to build a
battery pack for the current.

In fact, maybe I should build a nice Train-Go-Kit which includes the
battery pack and power distribution center for all the other stuff I want
to plugin while I RELAX!

Too bad I cannot run a cable out the back of the last car for a magmount HF
