I plan to get my license next month. I have been checking out the various HTs on the market and would like to get some recommendations from experienced folks on certain models that you've had luck with. I would like one with 2m/70cm bands, wide-spectrum scanning ability, and long battery life.
Once I get into it, I plan on getting a dualband mobile unit for my truck, but that's down the road.
Please help me by shedding some light on what I should be looking for. I hope to see yall on the air soon.
