Basic noob here.
I've got my eye on a Kenwood TM-281A to use either mobile or base, but mostly base. So I have a question not covered in the sales stuff: What kind of power plug does this thing come with out of the box? Cigarette lighter plug? Bare ends so you have to figger this stuff out on your own?
And when looking at mobile to base use power units (which I know I'd need to run household AC) but I haven't seen any outlet or anything to plug the mobile unit into.
If you think this is bad and laughable, you shoulda been there when I nearly chopped off my leg with a socket and ratchet..
