I bought a HX370S marine VHF radio. It's a neat lil thing. Water proof to 3 feet, and it has 40 channels that you can program to whatever you like. I've got all the 2 meter local repeaters programmed in with offsets, and tones, and a few simplex 2 meter channels also.
SO... While it's NOT a ham radio per say, It will get me on 2 meters for now, and be a great tool for comms during a disaster. It'll even do local Police, and ambulance freq's if I wanted.
When I get into a more permanent location, I will be doing some HF stuff, and getting a tower installed. BUT for now... It'll have to do with my "outlaw 11 meter" rig for hf monitoring, and my lil HT for local comms.
I also plan to have a mobile setup in my vehicles as well.
