My wife wouldn't go for a car battery sitting in the basement, so, I ended up with a MegaWatt S-400-12 that my buddy sent me for free! He picked it up cheap at a hamfest and said he thinks it's brand new. It can do 30A continuous...I found them on eBay and read the eHam reviews and they look good (especially for $0!) I ordered a Slim Jim antenna by N9TAX and a little SH2P4 speaker. Both of those had glowing reviews on the ham sites.
