I can be reached on the ARAC repeater at 146.9400, minus, PL 103.5, usually during drive time, and sometimes in the evening!
This is my first radio, a Yaesu FT-60R.
I highly recommend this radio, as do many, many others.
My second radio is a Yaesu FT-2800m. I mounted that one in my Jeep. Its working well, and I'm happy with it.
