I've heard nothing but good about the 897d, great score!  The talk around here is that hardley anyone talks on 80 or 160M.  So a cheap 20M diapole would be an easy way to start.  Your probably reading all the same online info that I am, since I'm new to this as well.
Good luck

Callsign:  KK6AEL

License date:  October 2012

Current radio set-up:  Yaesu FT-7900 (2m/70cm) mobile radio setup with a Comet SBB-5 antenna.

Currently I'm in "listening mode", monitoring and learning the active freqs and users in my area.  I have yet to make a first contact on the HAM bands. If anyone's in range of Ridgecrest, let me know- I'd love to set up a radio check sometime.  Not a member of a club yet, but I'm thinking of joining.

Hey Jordan,
I like the custom call sign, nice touch.

Hey all, I scored an old Kenwood th79a hand-held dual bander.  It also receives marine and airplane frequencies :o
I just need to mount an antenna on the KLR now.

I have the same HT (TH-79a) and love it.  A great 5 watt dual bander.  A lot of accessories available for this radio.

Welcome Roy.  Good, another Ham man.  And another oldster like me.  Sounds like you have your General's license as well.  We have another Ham up your way somewhere I think.  Look forward to meeting you on the trail.

For those of you who may need a VE to help with testing, I have my official VE credentials from ARRL now and can help give tests up to Technician.  When I add on my Extra license later this year I will be able to help give tests to General. :)

Congrats Nick ;D  KK6???
The last two outings I've run on, the Hams out numbered the Non Hams.  So there are less and less guys we can broil on 2 meters.  But there still out there :D
