Double check your dates. It is two years late for ww2. Probably saw action in Korea. I have a 1945 M1 that missed ww2 but saw action in Korea.

I agree with all the advice here. I passed all three tests well; but, getting on the air was another experience that showed that book learning doesn’t get it all done. I learned a lot more and...

I agree with buying new. Icon has one under $600 and Yaesu under $700. I would recommend the Yaesu because you get both 6m and built in antenna tuner neither of which are on the cheap icon unit. I...

I think you need permission to use any repeater for a net. If you are thinking SHTF scenarios, you have to consider that a) repeaters may not be up and b) they may be dedicated to emergency traffic...

You need a General license for HF. Yes, you have some CW rights assuming you know CW. 10m is not open very much at this point and not reliable.

That is strictly FM. 10m and 6m is basically useless. The FTM100 is on sale for 290 at HRO. If you want dual vfo with cross band, then get the 400.
Plus you get c4fm on both.

The Ftm100 also has aprs and gps. The main difference is the 400 has two independent VFOs. You can do cross band repeat with the 400 because of that. They are both excellent radios. I have ftm100s
