I just pass my tech test May 4th at a local ham club
here in my area and I'm looking for a cheap handheld
radio. Know any place on the web who takes Paypal
where I can buy a handheld radio?

Congratulations on the license!!!!!

HamCity takes Paypal, I suggest you look at the Yaesu FT 60 for a nice dual band hand held radio, Now selling for around 180 bucks.

http://www.hamcity.com/SearchResult.aspx?KeyWords=ft60

IF you can get by with less power and dont really need the DTMF tone pad, Consider the Yaesu VX-3, A great little micro size hand held!

But whatever you get, Do get a dual band VHF/UHF radio. Worth the effort for future projects even if there is not a lot of UHF activity right in your area.
Cross band repeat, etc.
