Walking around the house with your HT is not mobile nor is it portable. Using the HT while on a bike is mobile. Walking to the gas station is mobile. Setting up a radio at camp is portable.

So Rudy will be mobile while he's riding his bike on or off the sidewalk but when he stops to ragchew he will be portable. What happens if he starts talking as he comes to a stop?
