Any recommendations on an SSB QRP rig (CW not needed), that supports split frequency operation?

It could be single band or multiband.

I only know the 'big' name models, such as the Yaesu 817.  There are many other QRP rigs, but I'm not sure which ones support split.

I ask because I will hopefully soon be issued with a resident's ham licence in Myanmar, (where I live and work). I will also be allowed to do /P operation, which makes SOTA and even IOTA (from the never-before-activated) islands operation feasible.  I think I'll definitely need split operation Smiley

A couple of things.  I don't think any radio made in the last 20 years doesn't support split operation. I can't think of one offhand.  And many will even tune the RIT  or XIT 10khz.  Which might be enough split. Now you mention getting on the air from Myanmar.  Using QRP SSB?   Ok.  Are you sure you want to operate QRP as a DX station on SSB?  CW or digital is a heck of a lot more doable at QRP levels than SSB. Think this through before you lay down your money. YMMV

This would be my portable (fun) station, not my QTH station.  I don't (yet) operate CW, but I do operate using digital modes.  Using FT8 would eliminate the need for split functionality, since the waterfall display fulfills that purpose.

years ago everyone operated split  on cw as well as phone/ssb.   lot of good older rigs you can buy,  ten-tec and drake, etc

nice to hear someone wants to operate split.

The KX2 comes to mind as a lightwieght, self-contained rig with excellent performance.

I don't use a mike, rather a earbud set used for cell phones and an adapter (splits out mike/earphone) - use the VOX to key for true hands-free operation.

Good luck

K3/10 with the full subreceiver, if budget is not a factor.
