I run a Kenwood TM-D710GA 144/440MHz FM Dual Bander in my car with a Comet SBB-5NMO 2M/70cm Dual Band Mobile Antenna on top of a Browning WSPBR10353 5/8 NMO Mag Mount. I often run APRS and use it for communications as well as location tracking.

HF Transceiver:
I have a Kenwood TS-940s with the Automatic Tuner kit installed and a cheap MFJ 10m-20m antenna I run out our bedroom window down to our fence when I get a chance to get on the air.

Home Monitoring:
I have a Kenwood R-5000 (30 kHz-30 MHz) all mode receiver with optional VC-20 for all modes in VHF 108-174 MHz sitting in my living room for basic monitoring during storms and other events. While it doesn't have a UHF option it is great for everything else I've thrown at it. When I need to transmit I use my TM-621a 144 MHz-220 MHz FM mobile transceiver, which is modified to allow for cross-band repeating if needed. While the TM-621a was first released in the late 1980s it is still a very reliable radio for me.

I'm not out hiking yet, and my need for an HT is mostly local repeaters, so my go-to radio is a 2m single band Kenwood TH-K20A.
