For the information of our first-time readers
Bicycle Mobile Hams of America got its start when a 'Stray' in
the June '89 QST magazine asked to "get in touch with hams who
operate their radios while bicycle-mobile", signed by Hartley Alley,
NA0A. Twenty-five hams responded, filled out questionnaires, and
received a summary of the collected data.
In April of '90 we had our first BMHA Forum at the Dayton
HamVention. We played to a packed house, overflowed the room, and
added 54 names to our mailing list. Our eight subsequent forums have
drawn increasingly larger audiences, and now BMHA is firmly established as
a 'regular' at this world-renowned event.
The BMHA has become the clearinghouse for the exchange of info and
ideas for the hams who go on the air from their bicycles.
BMHA membership puts you in touch with a friendly and helpful
group of bike-riding hams. You'll make contacts through our
membership directory and E-mail address list, the annual meeting and Forum
at the Dayton HamVention and other regional meetings, and of course
through the BMHA Newsletter, which has articles on bike trips, antennas,
other gear, operating tips, etc. A membership application is just
below this information frame.
