    I would not. For about the same money look at the Yeasu FT60R, Icom IC-T70A, or Alinco DJ500T.

    Part depends on what is active in your area. All the above are dual band radio's. If both bands are not being used around you, you can get a very good single band for about $100.

    I would stay with a simpler radio. Don't worry about cross-band repeat yet.

    Have you contacted any clubs yet? They can help with selection. Show you what they have, and how easy/difficult they are to work. Someone might have a used one to sell.

    No,

    I buy Yaesu Kenwood or Icom.
    Still use a Yaesu FT209 RH a Kenwood TS 50HF, and a Kenwood TM2570A from the 80s. All still work great.
    My newest radio a Kenwood TM281A 2m, a gift from a Police Officer friend.

    Good luck with the radio. Did you get your license yet? If so ask the moderators to change your sign-in. (If not they can when you do have it.)
    Welcome aboard.
