I am being gifted by a friend with what he calls a "bare bones" 15 year old, 2 meter mobile radio. I assume it is 50 watts. I also want to do APRS and 70cm and have other current "bells and whistles" in a second radio. This gift may take me in a different direction on the purchase of a full featured radio than what I was considering. If I was to own just one radio, I was going for the Kenwood TM D710 mobile. But now with two, it may be appropriate to change my direction. My questions are: What will be the best use of the bare bones mobile? As a "go kit" radio? A mobile? Or a base backup? As a supplement to the bare bones mobile, would another mobile be appropriate, or does it make more sense now to go with the Kenwood TH-D72A handheld? I know the immediate answer is to wait to learn more about the bare bones mobile, its performance and features, if any. But thinking ahead, I just wondered what some options might be. Poor me, with such decisions.
