When you need to carry a rig with you which can do mostly everything

Yaesu FT-817, Mobile HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver

This rig fits in most backpacks or messenger bags, can do 160m to 70cm with up to 5(10) watts of RF power, runs fairly long on quality AA batteries and there's many accessories for it including print files for having them printed. It's MARS/CAP modified.

It definetly is a keeper and can do things where my B3 modified VX-7R simply has to give up (no SSB for example). The very first weekend I got it, I've tried it out on the 80m band attached to some rough matched g5rv and got 100 kilometers per watt during a contest. (250km @2.5W) running on AA batteries.
