    I hope you take the test and pass it to!!!
    As for equipment Yaesu is my personal favorite. I have a Yaesu ft-2800 mobile and a Yaesu ft-8900 and I like them both. I have had a few ht's and hands down I liked the Kenwood th-f6a tri band the best.My suggestion would be get a ht to get your feet wet and build up from that.
