New To Radio / Re: New to HAM Community What is a good beginner rig?

Doesn't do you any good how long the battery lasts if you can't  make a contact, complete a relay etc....I'll take 650mah draw with 20 times the output any day of the week.  The key to running portable qro is simple, use enough power when necessary to complete the contact.
Keep checking the Facebook link guys as more progress has been made Today. Only the Mic and audio pot to wire in as standard. Hope to be adding a 6 pin mini din socket for data modes and an S meter sensor.

That was thirty meters, CW. I like that band very much and will likely enjoy it more once we have returned to coastal Virginia, and my tall trees for antenna support!  CW , like small, seaworthy sailboats, become MORE useful as weather and infrastructure deteriorates:  "Anti-Fragility" in action.

I'm lusting after a Nextion display but it won't work with this case.  I wonder if Sunil has thought about different front plates laid out for different displays.

id personally like the option to drop the power

Good point, I know of no small QRP rig with a low (lower!) power option... Great idea. It probably hasn't been implemented because of the extra circuitry. Often, dropping voltage will do the trick...

I was getting out to S. California on about 150mw.

That is amazing Joel. It really shows that sometimes it doesn't take much.

Thanks for your input guys.

I just bought the Super Antenna MP1DXMAX Dual HF plus 2 meter Bands SuperWhip Tripod All Band Antenna with Clamp Mount and Go Bag through Amazon prime.
My go bag radio is the 817nd with the lg auto tuner, also have the 20 watt goal zero portable solar power system witch includes a converter so I can directly plug in my radio like a wall mount.  Going to put it all together and try it and will post my results.

Looks great Andy, I love that gray finish. I wonder if a blue display might not look really sharp with the gray case. I just received my AGC and Click/pop kits today so I'm going to start in on building them and modifying my uBitx board Monday morning. I could put up with the pop every time I let go of the PTT, but this radio really needs AGC, so looking forward to finishing it. Keep us posted on your results.
