I am kooking to buy a new, mobile 144-148Mhz Type-Accepted radio with the possibility of SSB ( is this possible). If anybody has any places that would have a radio that is $150 or under it would be appreciated. I can go to $200, but that would be pushing it.

FM radios, even new ones, can be had in your price range. Used ones with SSB are going to be somewhat more than this. You might be able to find one of the older Yaesu or Icom base units for this if you look long enough.

BTW, although lots of folks buy stuff on ebay and similar internet sites, it's caveat emptor when it comes to serviceablity and condition. Always have a way to return it if it doesn't work as advertized.

Assuming you want a transceiver, not a receiver only, that includes SSB, you won't find a NEW radio at that price, and few used ones.  

However, new FM-only 2-meter mobiles are available in the price range you mention. I found a number of them on the HRO Web site
( http://www.hamradio.com/ ).
Use their search function and look under mobile 2 meter FM radios. I looked in their used radio section too, and I see a consignment IC-2100H listed at one of their stores for $90.

Another good place to look is the AES online site at
http://www.aesham.com/

If you have Web access, you can use the Google(tm) search engine to find a lot more information than I've given here.

Have fun with your new rig, whatever you do get.

About the only thing you'll find that does SSB and FM for 2m in that price range is a Kenwood TR-9000, and its lack of memories and CTCSS (PL) for FM might frustrate you a lot..it did me!
