As we continue our journey into field radio we’re reminded we need gear to take along.  One primary means of field operation is the venerable FM Transceiver.  In this episode of the Field Radio Podcast we’re joined by David Goldenburg (W0DHG) Co-host of the Ham Radio Now show to discuss selecting a VHF/UHF mobile radio for field portable use and other related items for field radio operations.
