Bicycle mobile operations are becoming more popular these days, especially when deed-restricted properties and other impediments hinder Amateur/Ham Radio activities.
In this video, Steve (WG0AT) shows us his 6 meter bicycle mobile system and documents some of the ham stations he contacted along his bicycle trip. According to Steve, he was surprised just how well his system worked:
"I was absolutely amazed how well a short whip antenna and QRP/5 watts work on 6m But the best part is working 6m from my bicycle! It's a real thrill to have stations come back to you and be able to tell 'em your QRP Icom 703 and to boot your on a bicycle (albeit at rest) using a Buddipole whip on your handlebars! How cool is that?"
Why not make a portable system like Steve's? Imagine riding and operating bicycle mobile as you travel to your ARRL Field Day site. Great, imaginative video from Steve!
