I don't know if this is where my question is supposed to go-I hope it is
My dad and I are new to HAM radio and would like to get a HF transceiver. Where should we start? We are studying for the General exam and should upgrade our licenses soon. I am partial to Icom and Yaesu, but we are open to suggestions. A base unit is probably our ideal rig. A mobile will work if the price is right.
Is any brand HF better than another? What rig(s) do you have and use? We are looking for an easy(if you can call it that) to understand/operate HF base unit. What Antenna do you recommend?
The unit can be a single-band HF only unit.
Thanks in advance!
PS-I love the eham.net forums!!
