Really depends on what you're going to do with it. As an example, my mobile is primarily for chewing the rag while commuting. I run dual banders in all three vehicles (2m/ 70cm). Local repeater are intermittantly active. In our Tahoe I run a FT-8800, in the YJ I have an FT-90, and my primary commuter has the ICOM IC-208H. It was selected for size.

I was talking to a guy with the FT-8900 quad bander yesterday. Apparently the radio does not have SSB on 10M. So your only option is 10M repeaters----not many of those.

We picked up a couple FT-2800's from, they're just 2 meter radios but we've got all the space we need to carry on a conversation.

If you ever get tired of it or want to upgrade, they seem to hold their resale value well.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
