QRP: Be Compact and Small

FT-817ND is a perfect transceiver for QRP operation and you can operate from 160m to 440MHz. Now I am using it with small mobile whip antennas and a miniature paddle. For less than 5 watts, it is not easy for me to make QSO with small mobile whips but it is not impossible. So far I worked with more than 70 stations.
