Because of my living situation I am using a Par EndFedz Mk II Trail Friendly antenna with my IC-7300, since it can do 40m and 20m and is only 41 feet long. However, it can only handle 25W.
Now, for FT8 25W is sufficient for all sorts of contacts (living in the northeast US I've had a number of EU and South American QSOs on FT8 at 25W on 40m and 20m).
But SSB is an entirely different beast since it requires a much much higher SNR than FT8 does.
Can one reasonably make SSB contacts with 25W? Or will that pretty much have to wait until I'm in a situation where I can use an antenna that can handle at least 100W?
