John VK3KM provides the following clarification on Mobile Record Claim Conditions

Re the query on mobile record conditions: As a minimum, one of the two claimants must have been operating mobile. (The other could be a mobile, portable or home station). To qualify as a mobile station, the following from the current record claim conditions: "A station is mobile if its equipment, including power source and antenna, is installed in a vehicle and the station is capable of full operation while the vehicle is being driven."

For those attending the WIA AGM Conference weekend - you will be able to hear about David VK5KK's EHF Dxpedition around the country. This should be a fascinating talk about bleeding edge amateur radio experimentation in the EHF band.
