I have a yeasu vx 5r
I have not been active at all with ham... limited budget and not many talking on 2 mtrs around here. I joined a local club here 10 years ago and I was not well received... I was a lost ball in high weeds! a nooooobie!
they mostly talked way over my head and I gradually left the club.
Had to renew my license last year and now with the jeep... I may be able to find like minded folks and have some fun with the jeep and with ham!
I have my scanners on most all day long and hardly ever hear the local repeater being used. I have one scanner on that freq only.
I am wanting to put a ham radio in the jeep, we are intending to travel back roads and explore... and feel a ham radio would work best for us.
Hope to get back into it and be able to participate.

I started working on the Novice ticket in '83' but getting interested in the workings of a transceiver, and learning how to know difference between a cap and a resistor, didn't get much studying done. I Started building crystal transmitters and receivers and antennas. Got so interested that I didn't study any for the Novice test till '86'. Picked up some old transceivers and receivers at yard sales and actions, then reselling them at a Ham Fest for enough to buy an old set of Kenwood 599D's that were stored in an old R&R box car for my first rigs. Swapped and traded ham gear and worked up to new gear in '91' when I got my Advanced ticket.
Base HF rig is the IC-737, 2m is the IC-275H, 70cm is the 475H. For mobile I use another IC-737, and an Alinco DR-605T, at times an IC-229H for trails.
I didn't get into UHF & VHF till '93', and at that time it was mostly on USB & CW. WAS on 80&40 meters CW as well as most all countrys. Also enjoy traffic handling on some of the traffic nets.
I was very dissolutioned with 2m & 70cm repeaters when I got my rigs for those bands for the same reasons mentioned, and can honestly say, I have had more friendly contacts on simplex than any repeaters.
For sure, stick with it, don't ever give up, there are many things that one can enjoy in amateur radio. There also is echolink with the computer.

Enjoy

N6TAY, started as a Novice as KC6TAY and then became a Tech Plus. I passed my code test years ago when I got my Novice license, I'm sure glad that code test pass certificate was still valid when the General class license Morse code requirement dropped from 13 wpm to 5 wpm (yes I know there's no more Morse code requirement). I could have probably have sent at 20 wpm for a code test but received maybe only at 2 wpm.
