You did not indicate what class of license you hold. For long range, from the jungle you will need HF radios. Not likely to find anything new around 200 dollars, but the 10 year older solid state rigs sometimes go for that price. I'm still using my 12 year old Yaesu 757. that model goes for about $ 300 on ebay .
