Once I have a radio, I'll probably use the 2 Meter band with phone most of the time, at least initially. I'll probably operate out of my car and at home. My wife is currently studying for her technician's and she's expressed an interest in CW, so we may end up learning that together. The data modes sound interesting, but I don't have plans to explore those right now, maybe in the future though. I will probably ease into using other bands too, as I get more experience, but for now, 2 Meter seems like a good place to start. Does that help?

I'll have to take a look at jLog. Thanks!
