Default icom 229H

so a big ham/wheeler buddy of mine at work has an


that he is willing to part with (give me) cause I'm the only guy he's ever met that has a vanity call-sign and no radio but I won't take it for free...

so I am thinking about this radio as a good first/cheap option for the 80...

I know its a simplex, but it seems like a good starting point especially since in all likelihood the extent of my ham-ness will be trail only initially.....

what say you? waste of time, plunk down the ft-8800 cash now, or yea cheap/good starting point?
