I have a dual band radio in my truck, makes road trips so much better. I eventually want to get a home station set up with a huge antenna.... But that's for when I'm old and hopefully able to afford such a fucking expensive hobby.

I would suggest getting a window or magnet mount antenna to connect to your baofeng and getting a hand mic too, you can get a mobile setup that is fairly powerful for pretty cheap.

I'm getting a FT-60R pretty soon. May try setting it up for mobile use like that. I guess if I program enough repeaters into a dual band, I'd be able to talk for a long ways on trips.

Do you make any simplex contacts when mobile or just over repeaters?

Nice, the FT-60R is a good radio, you'll be happy with it. Plus Yaseu makes good radios all around , I'm a fan. Like I said, you should get a antenna that clips to the top of your window in your truck or you can run a mag mount antenna on the roof. I drilled a hole through the roof on my truck for my radio. Figured why the hell not? It's my truck and I don't plan on selling it.

When I'm mobile it's mostly repeaters I'm hitting but I definitely scan the simplex channels and occasionally get a trucker or someone on a road trip. Usually only get a few minutes talking simplex before we get out of range, I'm only running 2m and 70cm.

Hit me up when you come up to Idaho and we can try to make some radio communication. I'd post my call sign but I don't want people to know my name.
