Hey fellow hamers, I am just getting started (only thing i have is the ARRL tech manual) and I'm looking at getting a jump start on equipment before i get my license in a couple weeks (I hope). I want to discuss rigs with everyone and look into the pros and cons of different aspects. My ultimate goal is to be able to reach the whole of the continental US from Atlanta Ga. I also want to have a mobile unit in my vehicle for contact back home when I'm traveling and a handheld i can use to experiment with trying to reach my home base when I fly for business trips.

My ultimate question would be which you suggest getting first (base, mobile, handheld) and what setup of each you recommend to achieve my first milestone (without having to sell off one of my kids to get it )

As far as a mobile radio I own a yeasu 8900R quad band with a diamond HV7A quad antenna. Really a great radio and antenna
