         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.
