But I would never pay that much for medium power.
You could get a great used Galaxy MP already modified and ready to go for around $150
Look for a Galaxy DX 88HL or 77HML or a 99V. The 99V will probably run closer to $200 used.
If you're stuck on new, for a few more bucks you might look at the Galaxy Dx 94HP. This one is a "high" power and can key 40 swing to 100.
I can't say either way on G.I. Joes. I could recommend Walcott in Iowa I think they are.
If I'm limited to only 13.8 to 14.1 volts via my truck's binding posts, would that voltage be sufficient to run a higher wattage radio?
I don't have a bunch of electronics knowledge, but as I understand it, a higher wattage radio requires the radio being wired directly to the truck's battery terminals. My company says this is a no no.
