I suspect the common answer on ASC will be a puxing px888. Dualband, programmable and readily available. As far as headset/ptt goes that's a little bit more subjective but make sure to stick with Kenwood plugs (for to use with teh puxing). Availability of ptt and headsets is a little hit and miss though especially early in the season.
