As I am (slowly step- by - step) preparing and studying for my Ham Radio Technical License, I will be receiving a portable C. Crane CC Radio to listen to the 2 meter band conversations. I want to listen and learn the correct and professional manner how to communicate when I receive my license and purchase a 2-meter radio after I receive my license. You know......"crawl before you walk" learning. I'd like to have an outdoor antenna for the C. Crane portable radio which I can use later as a permanent antenna for using the 2-meter radio as a base unit. Any recommendations for a decent 2-meter antenna? Is there a recommended distance between the 2-meter antenna and my Colossal 10K CB antenna? Optium height of the 2-meter antenna? Thank you. Recon 881 Central NY.
