Mark mentioned the Phoenix, and I have one at the house that's
been operating 24/7 for years. Works very well.
A little over a year ago, my favorite was stolen -- the Yaesu
FT-1500M. I think they've been discontinued, but they're selling on Ebay
for between $100 and $200. At closeout, they were selling for around $140
or less, so you might look there for one of those. It's only a radio,
doesn't include a TNC.
