TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Ed Eklin is into a little different kind of texting while driving, and he’s doing it in all 3,077 counties in the U.S.
Beeps and blips of Morse code radio transmissions pitter-patter from speakers mounted near the headrest on the driver’s seat in his SUV. The vehicle, a rolling radio shack for the ham radio operator, wears a compact antenna and is packed with all the amenities of his home broadcast booth, the Traverse City Record-Eagle (http://bit.ly/1Ee11WE ) reported.
His cozy cockpit boasts a GPS, a laptop for logging contacts, his Morse code paddles and, of course, his radio.
“I’ve only got 900 to go,” said the radio operator who is more commonly known by his call sign, K8ZZ. “For me to complete my feat, it will be 240,000 miles to drive through and transmit in every county in the U.S.””
