Ham Radio Motorcycle Mobile [VIDEO]

A few months back I posted a story about getting a bicycle and looking up way to attach a radio to it to do some mobile work. While the summer has been busy and that project is on the side for the winter, I came across this video from KH1JH, of his Motorcycle mobile. Justin shows us how he mounted an HTX-202 from Radio Shack and is able to use it while on the road on his bike. A nice little setup if I do say so. Wish I could have a nice big hog to ride while doing 2 meters. That would be fun I bet! But I digress, here is Justin’s video. Enjoy!

    Good job on the video. Thinking about putting a 1/2 wave, jpole, or slimjim antenna on my scooter.

    I ran a Regency HR-2b on my 74 750 Honda and then on my 76 900 BMW. Used a 5/8 whip mounted on the luggage rack. Kept the radio in the top of a tank bag which made it easy to take off the bike at night. Generated quite a bit of disbelief when calling someone through the local autopatch. Came in very handy several times when traveling around the country on the bike.

    Where did the 1/2 wave antenna come from? Did you buy it, or make one out of an existing old antenna?

    Nice little setup. It appears to work fb.

    73, Larry
