Thanks, Bob.

In other words, the CES term would not be "mobile" it would be "portable."

I just called AutumnWave and asked what they mean by mobile.

Scott, who answered the phone, said that he had never actually tried
the unit mobile. Did have it on the seat next to him while driving
once and, yes, it did cut in and out regularly. To paraphrase him, "
its not like a DVD where you get a continuous video, but you can take
it to a camp ground and even at some distance get decent reception. We
just had a call from a customer who was amazed that he got reception
of a ball game while in a camp ground".

Scott said the owner or CEO of the company had tested it while driving
he thought. Mobile is more like moving it from place to place he
cautioned. But it will receive the signal while moving just not
reliably.
