Hello everyone, I am new to the world of ham radio (only had my ticket a few weeks now) and need some advice on a mobile rig. I am looking to get something I can put in my truck and possibly carry it into the garage on weekends and evening that won't be to crazy expensive, the websites that sell radios and equipment are a little overwhelming when you don't really know where to start. I will be on 2m 70cm for a while until I get the hang of things and learn my way around and feel knowledgeable enough to try for my general license. I am currently using a hand held and want to upgrade and also don't want to have to stand in the cold all the time. As for antennas I have a j-pole and ground plane nothing special just regular antennas that new hams build. If anyone has any advice for me I would really appreciate your time.
