Ham Radio

/ Motor Cycle?

In 1984 I obtained my full motor cycle licence as soon as I turned 17, I had been riding dirt bikes and mopeds since the age of 11 and had developed a mechanical mind early. I have been interested in motor bikes for about the same time as I have radio and I can remember fitting my Honda C-50 out with a Binatone Speedway 40 channel CB and DV-27 antenna back in 1983.

These Days I still have four motor cycles that I ride and maintain regularly but since I have been a licensed ham(2004), I have not yet operated amateur radio from any of the four machines.

I might try something with the FT-817 on one of my bikes soon, but at present I'm enjoying the ride whilst the warm dry conditions last!

For now the Toyota Rav-4 "Mobile DX Machine" & Yeasu FT-100 are both on standby.

Right, where's my helmet and gloves........

    Sigh! I remember using my Kenwood HT wrapped in a plastic bag on my way back from Barnsly coz it was tippling it down, that rig was never the same after that soaking. It was fun to be able to go to places that I couldn't go with the car, like up a long dirt track to a tall hilly place!

    I hope you have loads of fun with motorcycle mobile, and I am sure you will work out a system like I did for linking the rig to the helmet.. Speak to you soon Si
