Hey guys. Glad to see this thread. I have been shopping transcievers for a couple of months since a friend ("Elmer") has been encouraging me to get my license for years. It will be a long process I know but I thought I would get a radio first and just monitor while I am learning. I have learned a lot just by surfing the Ebay ham radio section http://listings.ebay.com/aw/plisting....html?from=R11
There are quite a few mobile 2 meter rigs. Myself, I'm looking for something like a Kenwood 820S and then, as needed, pick up a mobile later.
