In GM land in our 3cms wideband days when George GM3OXX/P did "summits" he used to take along a homebrew ~0.5W SSB 2m rig not much
bigger than an FT817 and a three element 2m "back -packing" beam and that was quite adequate for 100km+ talkback  . Of course he
would hear our Belcom Liner 2's easily...in many places!
 
Aye, Chris - and he held the British (and World?) DX record for some time too (Mull of Kintyre to Pendeen Watch?) whilst using such QRP gear, so it shows it can be done!
