Thanks for the info guys !!!!
I finally had a chance today to hook up the ft-817 and with the beam work Croatia , Italy , and 4 other countries SSB on 5 watts or less on 10 meters . That was fun !!!! Even tried Croatia on -2 watts! While I never considered these contact with 1000 watts a big deal it was fun spinning the vfo answering their call -5watts qrp.
