Bicycle Mobile on the HF Bands
An easy way to implement a mobile radio system, for the operator on two wheels.
by Christian Bravo, W4ALF
After experimenting with pedestrian mobile and being active with Summits on the Air (SOTA), I was looking for a new amateur radio challenge. My experiences with portable ham gear led me to the idea of adapting my mobile setup to fit on my bicycle. The two-wheel setup would allow me to be even more mobile, and still be able to communicate on the HF bands.
July/August OTA
Shopping for Coaxial Cable
Feed lines, also called transmission lines, transport radio frequency (RF) energy from your transceiver to your antenna. Without a feed line, your signal is going nowhere. Here’s a closer look at coax, the type of feed line you’re most likely to encounter, with an eye toward how to determine what cable to buy for your station.

Simple and Inexpensive Auto-Calibrating Multifunction Project
by Gene Marcus, W3PM
This simple project includes a two-channel VFO, WSPR source, frequency counter, and a clock. This menu-driven multifunction project includes a band switched two channel 110 kHz to 112.5 MHz VFO, band switched 6 m to 2200 m WSPR source, a 0 to 6.5 MHz frequency counter, and a clock that displays time, date, and temperature. Frequency and time accuracy are maintained by a highly accurate temperature compensated DS3231 real time clock (RTC) board.
