Mobile Radios are a great way to communicate locally (mounted in a fixed location). In the video, I talked about Cross-Band Repeat using the Kenwood TM-V71A (https://amzn.to/2RwmbAD) and showed you the Comet GP-3 antenna (https://amzn.to/2Ava9Ou). For fixed locations, you will also need a power supply (https://amzn.to/2Fb1zaD)
HF Communications lets you talk to the world. In this video you saw the Icom IC-7200..well, this video is a few years old now, so the Icom IC-7300 has taken its place: https://amzn.to/2RBPZvG You will also need an antenna tuner (https://amzn.to/2GYXzMQ), power supply (https://amzn.to/2Fb1zaD), and an antenna (https://amzn.to/2SCLP4b)
If you just want to get on the air with little hassle, they've begun offering packages like this one with the Icom-718 with power supply, antenna, headset, foot switch, and cabling: https://amzn.to/2SyvbCC
