What to look for in a radio? KF5SQL on 2/5/12
I have used a simple J-pole made from 300 Ohm ladder line, suspended from the chandelier above the dining room table to access repeaters on V/UHF ina 35 mile radius with 25 watts. In my attic is a 3 element 2m yagi on a pvc pipe. Temporary, invisible and effective.. Do not limit yourself to V/UHF. HF is very pobbile from all indoor and stealth antennas. The gated communities of FL have produced some ingenious antennas that do a credible job..

The choices of rigs and antenas are mind boggling. Visit some local hams and see what they are using.. New and shiny does not mean better. Your wallet is a big factor as is your real estate.. The antenna is the most important factor. I use both USA gear (Ten Tec) and Icom. Start slowly and if you buy used, insist on the opprtunity to try before you buy or a return.. I offer to let prospective buyers come to my shack and operate any rig I wish to sell. That way everyone ends up happy..
