Below is a video demonstration of a fully mobile digital ham radio setup that can be operated anywhere within range of Wi-Fi or cellular networks. With this setup I can connect to any Wires-X room in the entire world. I can be indoors working plugged into AC and WiFi or fully portable using battery power and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The laptop is handy for quickly finding and switching to rooms, but so long as you have a nearby Wires-X or System Fusion repeater connected to the Internet you could work with just the handheld radio.
