Pedestrian Mobile!!

Have you heard such a thing before? Well I haven't and I was really surprised because 
admittedly I could never imagine that there was such a thing!
So listen to what it is.
They say that you walk on the mountain having fastened on your backpack an FT-817, 
5 watt output radio, holding a short whip high up with your left hand, while talking 
into a microphone with your right hand, or keying a morse key fastened on your right 
thigh (you know these military morse keys).
And you talk to the whole world.
Ymittos Australia and New Zealand, while having your morning walk near the monastery.

Now what will the others say when they see you having your QSOs first thing in the 
morning, before they are even totally awake..., well this is another story!!

For goodness sake Demetre SV1UY you have totally broken my nerves my friend with all 
this, and you have me thinking hard about it. I am really jealouse of you!!!

Be prepared for harsh competition very soon. You will be walking on Ymittos and I will 
be walking on Lycabettus! Don't think you are going to get away with it!!!
