Looking for advice KI5DYE on 4/4/19
I'm new to the HAM world, and have just passed my Tech. test. A friend who is an Emergency Management Coordinator with FEMA and peaked my interest in being able to "give-back" to my community by helping in emergency's, that is the reason for getting my HAM license. I'm considering the Yaesu FT-60R for my first radio. Restrictions prevent me from having a home base unit, so I need to focus on a mobile unit. I can not mount a mobile unit in my employer's vehicle, but can install a mobile antenna on it. Is the Yaesu FT-60R good for my first radio, and if so, what is the best mobile antenna to use with it? I'm happy to listen to experience.
