For those who are starting out which would be a good radio to buy? It could be one that can be used inside the home as well as when one is away traveling. Also, something that is easy to operate and not too expensive.

The first thing to consider is how much are you willing to spend on it because there is a wide variety available. If you would like a basic handheld to listen in you can get one for about $50. If you want an advanced radio you may have to spend more depending on what features you prefer.

You have mentioned portability which I believe is paramount. For a start, you may decide to go for a cheap option.

Do not worry so much about the ease of operation as almost every electronic comes with a manual and I believe anyone can get through any difficulty.

You also need to consider other factors when you look around for a ham radio. For example, what frequency you are going to use? If you operate only from your house it will be cheaper and if you need a portable the prices will differ. You also have the option of buying a used radio which you may find on eBay or Craigslist.
