    Radio Wheels: bicycle mobile ham radio! (pics and vids)

    © by LU5DX facebook.com/LU5DX

    If you like outdoors and bicycling and you are an enthusiastic ham radio op, there is no objection, you really can give mobile ham radio bicycling a try!

    I stumbled upon the Bicycle Mobile Hams of America web site (http://www.bmha-hams.org/) and found some good info about this topic.

    Has anyone already achieved DXCC or WAZ with this type of operation?

    K5PA - Bicycle Mobile station


    Consisting of an FT-817 HF-VHF-UHF radio, HF and VHF/UHF antenna, and battery. The station can also be charged from a flexible solar panel mounted over the rear wheel carrier. This bike is a work in progress and represents a lot of fun.
