Re: using a K3S with a Q5Signal 144MHz transverter

If you are planning on 2M FM then 25watts is adequate. If you
plan to work tropo then 150watts is adequate. If you plan to
work 2M SSB via EME then legal limit is necessary. All of this
depends largely on your antenna system. If you use a simple
antenna then don't plan for more than 100 watts or so. Feedline
quality, meaning very low loss, is also critically important.
For my 10 ele yagi at 50 ft I use 75 ft of 1/2" Andrew hardline
and with 150 watts I can work digital EME at moonrise or moonset
to take advantage of ground gain.
So what do you intend to do, operationally?
