Doing it with less

Lately I have been playing with QRP.  QRP is generally less than 6 WATTS, but many think that it just means lowest WATTS needed to connect.  I have two QRP built rigs, the Yeasu FT818ND and a Xiegu X5105.  I really like the Yeasu, the sound if great and there are many nice features to it.  I have made several contacts with the Yeasu with the farthest being Florida.  The Xiegu has a lot of really neat features such as built in antenna tuner and build in SWR analyzer.  You have to work a little harder to make contacts but I personally like the extra effort to put into it.
