Some SOTA Radios
  • Yaesu 817ND (my favorite QRP rig)
  • LDG Z-817 auto tuner matched to 817 radio.
  • Elecraft KX2 (the most awesome SOTA rig in my opinion, worth the $$$)
  • Elecraft KX3 is used by a  lot of operators, its more $$$ but nice radio system
  • Yaesu 891 (my 100 watt SOTA rig)
  • MFJ-939Y (auto tuner for 891)
  • Yaesu 857D is used by a lot of SOTA operators as a 100W rig.  Shack in a box and goes from HF to UHF.
  • Yaesu 70D HT that I use as a backup in case I can't use the HF
