Portable ham setup for tactical operations?

Post by Ace45acp » Mon Oct 21, 2013 12:43 pm

Hey everybody,
I'm new to AR and lean towards tactical and emergency use. I'll be sitting for my technician exam on the 3rd.

I was looking for recommendations/guidance on building a set up that would have the ability to be carried in a radio pouch in molle gear and be PTT capable, and be able to hook up to an amplifier in a vehicle to say reach 4-500 miles away or at-least catch repeaters to get there.

Like I said still new too this and still working through my study guide for the exam so forgive me if my terminology isn't quite there.

Shout out to Mrs and Mr NoAm in WNC for suggesting getting licensed and plugged in.

question, can your tech licence class use D-star? if so, where and when will this radio be used?
