Well, for what it is worth, it is very hard to beat the IC-208H. Yes, it is new, and you ask for used. But the truth is, it beats just about everything made (by Icom at the very least), introduced in the last 3 or 4 years. For $289.99 including the rebate, and with full warranty, you really can't go wrong.
If you'd except a Kenwood, the D210A with it's APRS capabilities (you have to add pieces obviously), it is solid as well.
If you're into Yaesu, the FT10R is one of their best offerings, and with Bluetooth, you can be handsfree.
