 My interest to QRP operation appears in January, 2002 after I have bough nice, real pocket size transceiver HF/VHF/UHF YAESU FT-817.
It gave me possibility to be in a "HAM life" all the time: when I drive my car, from the hotel during the business trip, or somewhere else.
 It has 5 watts output on all HF bands + 6 meter + 144/432 MHz
and all modes (CW, SSB, FM and digital modes).  And it very suitable as IF (Intermediate Frequency) for transverters.


Antenna ATAS-100 on the car's trunk. I've build up small
controller for manual remote of ATAS-100
Now I can use one with my FT-817 and any other transceivers.
