Of course I took with me some radio equipment: A JingTong 2m porto with 2 Watts output. Even about 15 km from my QTH Zoetermeer, I was able to make contact with the local repeater on 145.750 MHz, FM. I had two nice chats with Jack, PA7RJ. I found out that the JingTong porto works fine after not being used for allmost one year and 2 Watts is enough for smalltalk.
Switched on the app "MyTracks" on my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Y) to record my track using the GPS satellites. It makes a nice track on Google maps as you can see in the picture above. I really recommend this app.
Some impressions of my bike ride today:
This is the place where your Heineken beer comes from. The factory is located in Zoeterwoude
These guys block my way...
Quiet area in the "Randstad "
