Default Low Cost 6M Transciever?

To cut to the chase, I''m in the market for a transciver that can
cover the 6 Meter band, and I'd like some advice. What I'm looking
for, is as follows.At a minumum, I wuld like to have at least 15 to 25
watts of Output Power.Coverage of the 6 Meter band is an obvious
(minimum) requrement, though as many other bands as is possible would
be nice. I'm hoping that at least some portion of 2M/1.25M/70CM/33CM
is possible, but I'll take what I can get. Being a HT would also be
nice, though I have little hope of this point being within my budget.

With that said, I'm on a rather tight budget, and am not willing to
spend substantially more then $200 (US Dollars) (nothing is absolute.
But I would need an EXTRORDINARY motivation, to go over, say, $225.),
and would strongly prefer to spend comething closer to $100 to $150.

So, does the communnity have any advice on what would make for a good,
low cost 6 Meter Transciever?

Derek-

You remind me of a cartoon I saw where a youngster had a large pile of
electronic equipment at the checkout counter and told the cashier, "Stop
when you get to $10".

There is an old Icom IC-T8A handheld FM transceiver that covers 50, 144
and 440 MHz. Icom does not make batteries for it any longer. Others
may know of a more recent radio, but I can't think of any.

Perhaps you can find a used Icom IC-706A, IC-7000 or Kenwood TS-2000 at
a price you can afford. These require a 13.8 Volt power supply or can
be operated from an automobile battery. They cover HF as well as 50,
144 and 450 MHz, and do CW, AM, FM and SSB.
