By Peter Dodd, G3LDO, The fascination of taking a radio away from home and making contact with stations both near and far is an enduring one in amateur radio circles. Written by acknowledged mobile expert Peter Dodd, G3LDO Amateur Radio Mobile Handbook is for those who regularly "go mobile" or simply want to start doing so.
The mobile operation can offer a great escape from EMC problems or restricted home operation and provide the challenge of the quest for that really good operating location. This book is designed to cover all these aspects of this popular part of the hobby. From the basics of amateur radio mobile, installing radio equipment and antennas in a vehicle, maritime mobile, bicycle mobile to pedestrian mobile you will find it all covered here. In addition, Amateur Radio Mobile Handbook contains a chapter on antenna measuring equipment and how to use it. You will even find the use of kite or balloon-supported antennas and the experimenting with unconventional antenna arrangements described. There are also guides to the possibilities of APRS and D-Star operation.
In spite of the greater use of electronics and the lack of space in modern vehicles, the availability of lightweight, comprehensive radios means that it has never been easier to become a mobile operator. The Amateur Radio Mobile Handbook provides essential reading for all those who want to get the most out of amateur radio mobile.
