I decided that dropping another $50 into my old Yaesu FT-411 2m HT was not the best use of my money, as I wanted to get some additional bands.  So I made the trek up to R&L...

 

My first thought was to find an HT, since it is portable and can be carried with me on the bus.  Through much discussion, I settled on a used Icom IC-T90A with no manual for $175.  The unit I actually purchased had a depleted battery, so the first thing I did was plug it in.  The second thing I did was download the manual from the Icom website.

I asked about a mobile rig, and found that I could get a 2m only rig (a Yaesu FT-1900R) for about $130, so I made the jump for that as well, and of course purchased a magnet-mount antenna.

Look out uhmerica!  I'm back on the air.
