Two Stories - 100 Watts and a Wire
I've worked the world (209 DXCC entities) with 100w RF and a wire... it can be done!
Yep, I'm at 102 using a barefoot IC-718 first, and then an IC-7000; driving an 80m skywire loop and later a ladder-line doublet. Granted, a LOT of progress was made back in the maximum of 2013-2014 - so hopefully the upcoming maximum will open the door for a lot of other barefoot operators. The advent of FT8 and FT4 should also help a lot of ops get there.
