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.
