Skye, I have found my 5 watt handheld to work well at NW rallys. I can almost always talk to Mt. Top with 5 watts. Now my car has a 25 or 50 watt rig these days with a good ant. It works, well better.

Line of sight is funny, with my handheld here in my 45th floor office I have no problem talking to the Mt Constitution Repeater some 75 miles away... line of sight, even with the crapy rubber ducky ant.

1/3watt seems to be a little light on power. Esp since a 5 watt 2m/440 radio is cheap on e-bay or www.qrz.com
