I'm using a TH-F7E (the Europe/UK version without 220MHz) and a homebrew
antenna and diplexer.  As a few others have said, you need to get used
to switching to the B radio and tuning for Doppler and then quickly
switching back to transmit, but it's not a huge problem.  I found it
hard to get into AO-51 when there are more powerful stations working it.
but SO-50 is suitably quiet and AO-51's QRP mode gives us HT users a
fighting chance.
