The ftm-991A is an all band, all mode transceiver and reasonably light weight. The FT-857D is a lot smaller and a lot lighter but doesn’t have VHF/UHF, so you would need another unit.


Icom is releasing a transceiver, I believe it is an all band SDR type of radio, super light, but more on the QRP side.

Subject: [New-Hams] Grab and Go Shack in the Box?


Can anybody offer suggestions for a grab and go all band solution? I know I need off grid solar and a battery solution, but I'm hung up on the radio other than I'd like it to be digital capable (c4fm/d-star) not really looking at DMR.
