Radio for my DX Vacation

These are Radios I have used since 2008.
As whole weight is generally limited my target weight is under 50-60 pounds (23-27Kg).
Generally speaking FT857 will be the best if weight is very severe. Eagle is the best only if weight is not severe.

K2 is best radio for CW but very poor for Digital Mode. Audio level setting is very critical to keep stable output power.  Any idea will be appreciated.

I will take FT857 or Eagle somewhere in South Pacific next year.

JA1NLX/VK4 from OC-187 The END

Log has been uploaded on LoTW server.

1306 QSL cards have been printed/sent via Buro (by GlobalQSL)
267 QSL cards not yet.

This is QSOs/Band sorted by Continent chart. Not too many QSOs with EU and NA due to poor condx.

I will try again somewhere in South Pacific next year too. Hope to work you again.  Thanks !!!
