Any time I’m in Maine I get fantastic handheld coverage off of the Whitten Hill, Granite Hill, and Cook Hill towers. South of the Whitten Hill coverage area on I-295 (South of Freeport, generally speaking) portable coverage is much less. Is this just a reality of the system? Using a portable on a bus I had very spotty coverage from the state line to Brunswick.

Yes, I believe the system was engineered for mobile coverage, not portable coverage. Being inside a vehicle will degrade your performance even more.
