    Yes.Will do. I haven't transmitted with more than 5 watts for years, so it will be interesting to see what 20 watts can do.

    Re: IC-703 or FT-817

    Hi

    I have owned the FT817, Great Radio at the time but a very small screen. I now use a Xiegu X5105, 5w output power with built in ATU and Battery. Excellent Radio for the price.
