KF6SKO – Radio Station Setup

Well after 10 years I figured it was time to finally get my Ham hobby going.  For the antenna I purchased a J-Pole from KB9VBR (JPole-Antenna.com).  For a radio I have an old Yaesu FT-50R dual bander and a cheap Baofeng UV-5R.  For my antenna feed I purchased 30 feet of MilSpec RG-213, which seems to be working great.  Right now I am spending time on a local 2m repeater ran by N6ICM and researching packet radio.  I still have not decided if my next purchase will be a radio with a built in TNC or a radio and an external TNC (modem).  But I definitely see data in my future!
