Hi Jacob!

Just a thought:  A Yaesu FT-817ND is a really nice all-mode radio–portable with batteries, or plug in to the mains with a transformer, or into 12V in a car.   Lots of frequencies you could not use with Technician, but incentive is nice, right?

Two disadvantages:  It is only 5W.  That may be fine for you depending on your use.

The other is that it is $800 new.  There are a lot of them around, so you might find it cheaper used.
