Today we are taking a look at the Xiegu x5105 portable qrp ham radio station in a box. The Xiegu x5105 is a lightweight, HF/6M, portable QRP radio every serious field radio operator would enjoy as their primary or backup radio, for ham radio communications off grid.. Some portable HF operators say it is an interesting alternative to the Elecraft kx2, or Yaesu FT-818.
