Well, I had a great day of DXing in the mobile with the FT-817nd sitting in a park for 2 hours - 15 meters was hopping and my 5 watts paid off. Had a rare day of beautiful, crisp wx. Unfortunately, I like CW and it's not easy sitting in a car with a key on your lap. I must have sounded awful to the guys in UK, Germany, Ukraine and Russia.

If I could have operated from the home QTH with the FT-897D, I would have done much better but I dare not because of the Eaton AFCIs.

I did try keying the mobile rig from right outside my apartment and it did not trip the breakers (I don't know about the neighbors, though).
I wonder if the 5 watt FT-817nd will work in the apartment as a base without tripping the breakers? I'll need some courage to try that.
