Any Ham radio operators in here?

I'm going down to take my test on Wednesday, April 4th. My pops already set me up with quite a few freebies, including a transceiver once I pass my test. While most of this stuff will be used at home, I'm looking to pick up at least an extra handheld for use in my truck while traveling and in my trailer while camping.

Just figured I'd see who's out there... Maybe see what kind of equipment you guys would recommend or if anybody had set up a radio in their trailer.

Kind of excited to post up my callsign once the FCC assigns one

Yep. Been licensed since 1986. I have a Ten Tec scout that I plan to take along this year. Planning on using a modified G5RV antenna. Good luck on the test.
