    I use whatever power is needed to communicate with others.
    Base 2 meter only goes down to 5 watts, can get every repeater within 50 miles with up to 75 watts.
    Have a friend that lives 11 miles away, comm with him is either through a repeater or 1,500 watts HF SSB 20 MTR ground wave.
    Using a hand set with an AL 800 antenna I can get to the three repeaters I would need to.
    The handset attached to the Ringo Ranger will get most of the others the base will.
    Six meter is best here for hand or mobile ops. due to terrain problems.
    I can run for a very long time, grid down.
