hey
I was wondering if there is a QRP radio for sale in sweden; like a elesoft ex2 for under 6000 - i need a light weight stealthy radio with internal power supply.

Hej Sara,

By "internal power supply" I guess you mean built-in battery? I doubt you will find any such radio with AC supply built in.

Maybe then something like this? https://butik.limmared.nu/sv/mobilapparater/3670-yaesu-ft-818-6w-hfvhfuhf.html
Or one of these? https://butik.limmared.nu/sv/1217-mobilapparater
Also available here: https://pileupdx.com/product/xiegu-g90-hf-20w-sdr-transceiver/
If you're looking for pre-owned radios, this is the best place to find them: http://dx-radio.se/

theres the elecraft radios they have battery power. as do the icom 705 and the xicom 2501 - i dont understand why mobile radios dont have internal batteries. "buy our radios they have radio parts but no, you have to finish the soldering and put a battery seporatly." its wierd when you think of it; they market a radio for QRP and then dont put a battery or areial in the package.

Probably because they sell to hams, we usually modifies and rebuild our equipment anyway. That's why kits like Ubitx is popular among us.

Well there is a small difference between mobile and portable. And not everyone defines qrp as a portable radio set with battery. To me qrp means just low power operations. Nothing else.
