Yup -- my own, this is a delivery trip.

In my wildest dream only.  Most of the time the SSB is used on marine 
band only by my non-ham peers, so VHF networking within the local 
boating community is not a valid configuration for me to pursue (my 
opinion).  The vhf option applies to WL2K network, I see a 2meter port 
12mi north of my home QTH, and expect it might be available in many 
ports I end up at?
