Those old cars bring back memories.  No AC, no power steering or brakes.  Old 37.10 frq. radios that run on dynamotors on transmit.   Had to have the car running at real fast idle or it would kill the battery in about 30 sec.  Range was terrible, almost had to see the other officer to talk to him.  WOW !

I remember them old dynamotors in the trunk-when you keyed the mike the headlights would dim

Even todays radios have blind spots in some places. Two I know of are on I 80 between Newton and Des Moines.
There is a solar powered Repeater just west of the Colfax exit to get radio service out of that part of the Skunk River Valley. And another just below the east mixmaster along the creek there.
