QRP is fun when you have an efficient antenna.

I would buy a used IC-706 or a FT-857D. You can always turn down the power. Your apartment antenna will be at best 30% efficient as a regular dipole. Other hams can run power but if they cannot hear you they cannot work you.

Another thought is buy a used IC-7000. All of these radios come with filters. The DSP on the IC-7000 is very good.
