There's also a number of "pirate CBs" sold as "10 metre radios" on the
market that are still available today (or at least have been in the last few
years) that would also work with MCW or PSK in the mic jack.

I have a HT version of one of these (Dragon SS-201), which I have used to
work Mode A portable.  The mobile/base versions typically run 25W PEP on
SSB.  One thing to watch is check all is up to spec, as my rig does have a
somewhat high degree of carrier leak, and it tends to drift a little (spose
with Doppler, that doesn't really matter! ;) ).
