One of the better starter radios is the Yaesu FT-450. Normally around $ 780 or so. If you upgrade, it will sell well, or be a great backup/2nd radio.

And for us old folks, the Heathkit SB101, with AC power supply and speaker, ran around $ 650 in 1970 money. Thats well over $ 2,000 in today's money.

Amateur radio gear is more affordable today than it every has been.

You can also ask around at a local club. From time to time folks sell their 2nd radio, but not very often today.
