How much money do you want to spend is the first question! A couple of 
short linear yagis like the M2 starter series, a used tv rotor, some 
good coax like LMR400, and a UHF preamp will allow you to work the 
majority of what there is to be worked. Assuming you bought this all 
new, maybe $400 or less.

AMSAT's "Getting Started" book is something you ought to read before 
making any big plunge. See http://www.amsat-na.com/store/item.php?id=100166
