Amateur Radio Bicycle Mobile Setup. Post #1554.

Here's a way to use Amatuer/Ham Radio while you work on shedding a few pounds in useful exercise.  Why not equip your bicycle for 2 meter/70 cm mobile operation? In this short, well-made video, "taverned" shows us how he used a mag mount antenna, a simple C clamp, and a basic ground system to convert his mountain bike into a mobile station.  The project is straight forward, simple, and gives you emergency communications while you peddle down the road.

Not all mobile operations can be run from your vehicle.  How about mounting a simple 5/8 wavelength Larson VHF magnetic mount antenna on your bicycle and using a HT to contact fellow radio amateurs on 2 meters while you cruise around the neighborhood?  "Taverned" has just done that with a simple 2 meter mobile antenna arrangement on his mountain bike. When you've finished your run, you can park the bike at a public park and operate portable from a bench or picnic table.  A very simple, effective operation--plus you get exercise and some fresh air at the same time.
