    For a rig for the truck I use an Icom 706Mk2g. 432-160m. Great rig and used would be in your price range.
    Good luck,
    Bulldog

    Well, I took the test to get my Technician class license and I passed. Go back tonight, the guy that gave the class is going to show us how to set up and use the equipment. My question for you fellow hams is this: What kind of radio would you recommend getting? I had been looking at base stations, but I've been told I'd be happier with a mobile unit in my truck, seeing as how that is where I spend most of my time. Looking in the 400-600 dollar range probably.

    Thats because the higher levels of society actually work with tools and technology instead of watching them work from the couch.

    Ham for 8 years

    Dadidadit dadadida.

    Technician since 2000, became Extra class in one sitting last year. I was practicing code and was probably ready for the code test, then they dropped code. Took the general and extra test same day. Kept my old call since it was one next to my wife.

    Hi
    I'm been a Ham for 10 years now, not as active as I want to be, just got tried of calling out and nobody responds. I must have a poor radio voice.

    AA4CB here. Extra Class. I was the last Extra class group in South Carolina to be test by the FCC. ( Actually had to go to Charlotte N.C, to be tested ) Just after I got my Extra Class the Amateur Radio Operators took over testing from the FCC.

    I also have a First Class FCC Commercial license and was tested by the Norfolk field office. I don't mess with radios much anymore. I had rather weld and play on the computer.

    I've had a Ham license for about 20 years. I originally got the license so that I could fly radio control model airplanes on 6 meters. I have a Futaba 53.5 Mhz radio setup that works beautifully, although I haven't flown for a long time.

    One thing that upset me was the fact that I got demoted by the FCC recently. I originally earned my Technician Plus rating with code and written examination. Now, with the recent changes, I've been
    demoted to a standard Technician, a class that can be earned without code. I wonder what I did?
    Oh well, it makes as much sense as anything else the "gummint" does these days.
