I'm getting my Tech license Saturday since I've always wanted to, and I bought this UV-B5 from Amazon.
It took a couple of weeks or so to come in from China, but the seller is extremely responsive if you have any questions, and reviews like this one, this one, these and this one are even better on the B5 (with rotary knob) and B6 (with flashlight) than the UV-5R units.
Not TC'ing - the UV-5RA is a good deal for the model. I've just read better reviews on the UV-B5.

Congrats on getting your Tech License ! I got my General last month. Using the BaoFeng UV-5R+ as my equipment to get into the hobby. Pretty well pleased with my HT thus far.
