Yaesu VX-5R w/ accessorie​s - $175 (Arvada)

Not too bad of a price, desirable radio.

Yaesu FT-840 Amateur Transeiver w/ Tuner - $500 (Arvada)

Price seems a little high, but a solid radio. A new FT-450 is only $100 or so more and that is a much better radio (although the FT-450D with built-in tuner is more like $900). For $500 it seems to include the tuner, which makes it a better deal.

Yaesu FT-450AT /MT Amateur Radio - $600 (Aurora)

For comparison to the FT-840, something sorta like this one...

Yaesu FT-817ND + Extras - $500 (Colo Spgs)

I really like my FT-817, super fun radio... Price isn't super good, though.

Ham Radio/2Meter Transceiver - $200 (Golden)

This is a Radio Shack HTX-202. Popular radio, based on an ICOM design, although not sure if they actually built it. Thing is literally a brick but I just don't see why they command the price they do. It's a cult thing I guess.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
