Todd and the Gang:
   You can go around the world with one watt! The key is putting up the
best antenna possible. Others will no doubt have lots to say about this.
   I've used an old DX-160 as a ham receiver; I'm currently using a
DX-400 as my station receiver.
   You don't need any elaborate transmitter - there are 3-transistor
xmtr circuits around you can build in one afternoon, and be on the air
that evening!
   Plan on spending as little as possible if you want to build your
own xmtr; parts can come from old TV sets and junked radios (learn the
fine art of dumpster-diving).
   The kit-builders on the net will surely fill you in on what are the best
for the money.
