    Ohh ok, sorry, I misread your post. I thought you aquired one (saw that you were still waiting on the power supply to come in - I figured you mail ordered it). It sounds like you have something good there to get you started until you pick out a radio for yourself. The FT-950 is also a very good radio. I've played aroun with one a little it didn't take long to learn some of it's functionality. My friend is very satisfied with his FT-950.

    I've been a ham just over 20 years I was an all-HF person until about 2 or 3 years ago. Until then, I gave VHF very little thought except for having a mobile 2m rig in the car or an HT to talk to a few other local friends. I discovered how much fun VHF / UHF can be at field day one year when all the HF stations were full and I played around on 6 meters. I've been hooked ever since, purchasing a radio with HF+6+2, participating in contests, using satellites, and soon to add to the list - EME.

    Do take time to try out different things in the hobby! There are so many 'niches' to get into which is what makes it so great.

    Chuck... yeah.. i've been going back and forth with the HT. One day i'll say yes, then the next no.... But, i think if i can get this bearcat scanner sold, and a Galaxy CB radio sold, i'll be getting the VX-6R.
