I just got my ham ticket. I passed the tech and the general the same night. Problem is I have absolutely no amateur gear. I probably did this ass backwards. I'm not sure whether I should get a 2 meter rig and get an hf rig later, or should I get an hf rig now? Would 500 dollars get me a decent used hf rig? If so what radios should I look at and which ones to avoid. . Thanks steve.
