     If you can find a good 515 for under $200 it's a steal.  There was no

      tHE 515 IS THE FOLLOW-ON TO THE VENERABLE 509. (oops, too much like 
      shouting)  The major improvements are the cryatal mixed VFO - much 
      better stability and dial accuracy, esp on 10M, and the finals.  Most 
      515's will do 8W or better on 80M.  The 505 was hard pressed to do 5W on 
      10M.  The front ends are the same: superior sensitivity.  The filters 
      were the same also.
