    Not quite bicycle mobile....but some years back QST featured the "R.U.M.P." Radio Under Motorcycle Posterior. Some guy had built a 1KW station into a GoldWing. Pretty impressive. :)

    We have vacation/retirement property in NE lower Michigan, EN85fh, and I did my very first century ride (100 miles) there last Tuesday. ( https://www.michigan-sportsman.com/forum/threads/did-it.654923/#post-7527265 )

    Thought about taking my HT but didn't because I can't talk and ride (breathing cadence) and I can see where using it on breaks could result in WAAAY too long of breaks.

    But then, here's an interesting concept;
    DISCIPLINE!!! Which was definitely lacking on this trip. So what difference would an HT make? Yea, think I'll take it next time.

    OK, rules question here. Not that I would do this, but would it be OK to use a 440 link to control an HF rig at different location? And can you even do that with an HT?


    Thanks,

    I don't know about that.

    I do know you can get Echolink with a phone, if there is cell service.

    I ride a Rad Rover electric bike. I use a EFHW 40-10 M or a linked dipole. The radio is either a 857D or a 817ND with amp. I only use 50W and talk phone.
