Search these forums and you will find a lot of great info and opinions on "my first ham radio". If you have specific questions ask. Welcome!VE5 PPR, Prairie Pine Railroad
Been a ham for about 10 years, but have only a little bit of experience with them. I have a Yaesu Vx-8dr HT radio, and am looking for some advice on putting a 2m rig in my truck. Budget friendly, and am wondering what features work and what are just salesmanship.
Would like to stay with the same brand, but am open to some ideas,
Also, looking for mounting ideas for a 17 era Silverado, when I got it, everyone seemed to be struggling on how to route cables, but I have seen a few posted.
Thanks in advance!
A radio with a detachable faceplate will provide you with more mounting options. Can't help you with the cabling ;)
