Ep. #337 HAM Radio: Things to Consider Before You Buy

Just some things to consider and tips if you're in the market for your first HAM radio. I'm still glad with the choice of the 817nd, however the antenna it comes with is not going to do much.
I bought a 2 meter Browning BR-159 antenna, and while in Des Moines I still wasn't picking up anything for quite awhile.
What I've come to terms with is that, in a small place like where I live, you're going to need to set up an external antenna, and right now it's just way too cold to deal with that. So once the weather warms up a little, hopefully I'll be getting better results.
