Mobile radios are like DIY cellphones. They can communicate across the world without the infrastructure of cellphone carriers or the internet. And sometimes, there’s a lot of satisfaction in being able to do something all by yourself.
Here I am at Hamvention 2010 in Dayton, Ohio checking out all of the mobile radios. There was everything from pedestrian mobile, to ham radio backpacks, to bicycle mobile.
