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 you

Bicycle mobile is a fun way to enjoy the great outdoors and get on the air at the same time.  In this video, Steve (WG0AT), sometimes known as "The Old Goat", equips his mountain bike with a battery, a 6 meter Buddipole antenna, and an old IC-703 QRP rig.  The video shows some fascinating contacts on the road, including Randy (K7TQ) in Moscow, Idaho operating pedestrian mobile.
