Baofeng UV-3R

This little radio is now FCC approved. That means this cheap dual-band transceiver is now within your grasp.

Already known by many, this 2 watt producing Chinese gem sells for as little as $50 on eBay. Although not a true dual-bander, it can only do one band at a time, for the price it does a lot. It comes with 2 antenna's. One for VHF and one for UHF. These antenna's are not that great and many users have replaced with a little SMA dual-band antenna. Comes with a LI-Ion battery, charger and ear piece/microphone. Also comes with some nifty features like an FM radio and LED flashlight.

Yaesu VL-2000 and VP-2000 HF/50 Linear Amplifier

1500 watts, that's how much this new amplifier produces. The VL-2000 from Yaesu.

But to get the full 1500 watts, this amplifier wants 48 volts, and specifically from the VP-2000 matching power supply which in it's turn prefers 240 volts. But if you only have 120 volts to give, you'll still get 500 watts.

More pictures here, manual here.
