    I've made numerous QRP (<5W) with the uBitx. I prefer my v5 to my v6.2 as it has gained more contacts. The v6 is easier for band changes. The v5 has a cleaner sounding recieve, or mine does.

    Field Day This Weekend ...... and no threads here .... lol

    I intend to use field day to work out my QRP portable setup. Virtually the only time there are enough stations across the bands willing to make quick contacts with portable QRP stations. Also, field day tends to run off the sit around and listen to themselves rattle guys (boring...).

    I hear you. QRP works fine for me. As they say, there's 3 things that anyone can or must do, poop, pay taxes, and make QRO contacts. ;)
