To those who have many will choose high end QRP transceivers such as famous Yaesu FT817ND with LDG and of course, a BuddyPole antenna. There are not many afford to buy high precision made transceiver such as Elecraft or Tentec.

QRP operation and NVIS operation will perfectly match for emergency communication. Remember, the lower your antenna, the higher take of angle and vice versa. Lower take of angle for chasing DX, higher take of angle for better local communication. Enjoy your hobby!
