> Life with only a 2 meter/70 cm/5 meter radio is getting a little tiresome.

> Here's what I'd like:
> If I'm going to go with a vehicle setup I'd like to have, at the very
> least, a dual band 2m/70cm radio capable of cross-band repeating. NOAA
> weather would be nice as well.
> If I'm going with a home station I'd like a 2m/70cm cross-band repeating
> setup. I am able to install an antenna on the house but nothing
> "spectacular"- the neighbors might get bitchy if I try to put up a massive
> tower in the back yard.
> Two radios at home, one for 2m one for 70cm (but this sounds repetitive).
> And with this setup I can't cross-band repeat so... well, it's just not
> idea. I like to be mobile while I'm on the radio. But at the right price I
> could go that route.
> Some kind of software radio interface with a hardware back-end. It has to
> work with OS X and from my searches on the Internet such a beast does not
> appear to exist. For shame. If it did I could potentially connect via
> software over the Internet to my home station. That would be pretty cool
> when traveling.
> Anyway, like I said, just looking for ideas.
