    Anyone ever use this radio? It's a small, portable QRP all-band. I'd like to get one at some point. What do you think?

    All my friends have them
    The radios are 5 watts output. They tend to work really well for QRP.
    I actually have the big brother to that radio the Yaesu 100D in my truck.

    I'm sure its a great radio, because it's Yaesu. I have a FT-8900R in my vehicle.

    Check out www.eham.com, and look in the product reviews. There have been mixed reviews about the radio.
