Yaesu FT-60 , This is a great radio (2meter/440) Even with the antenna that comes with the unit works well, I have had GREAT results and dont have any complants, You can also get a adapter so you can plug in a external antenna(mag.mount for example) and put it in the car when needed. This radio is resonable in price also check out HAM CITY.COMI'm new to HAM radio, KF5EUA, and am thinking to get started of going the hand held route in the 2M band,
Any recommendations? I want to use it to hit the local repeater, etc. Need to keep my initial costs as economical as I can.
