Congrats on getting your ticket Leon, and welcome to RS. I have an FT-60 that I never use. It's my glove-box "if all else fails backup
" radio. I have three antennas for it and a drop-in charger, plus a AA battery case and a speaker mic. If you'd like to borrow it for a few weeks to see if it is really enough radio for you, I'd be happy to loan it to you.
I think you'll find that you'll want a mobile rig with 50w tho.
