Baofeng UV5RA Ham Two Way Radio 136-174/400-480 MHz Dual-Band Transceiver @ Amazon $35.97 + FS

This is quasi-hot. $29 or lower with FS would be hot. The price on these has slowly been dropping. This is the lowest price since last year.

Add the programming cable @ Amazon for $8.30 +FS

Download CHIRP to program the radio.

And you've got a dual band radio to use for local repeaters for under $45.

You will need at minimum a FCC Technician license.
Sometimes the testers charge up to $15 for the test; others offer the test for free.

The technology for under $40.... I remember when I paid $150 for a modded SSB cobra radio 35 years ago....

It's now $30.98 Prime under a different listing at Amazon

That's fulfillment by Amazon
The Amazon direct is $31.27

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.
