I inherited so much stuff from my dad when he went SK just over a year ago. Hauled 3 pickup loads of ham gear home. Have pared things down to a good sized personal station but there is always still more to buy. A guy can spend a LOT on both hobbies!David, KI5GHO here.
Spent more money on Ham stuff this year than I did on gun stuff but enjoy both hobbies...
There's a handful of 0.5-30 MHz 5W transceivers available. Could get one of those and add an amp. You can run 100W on 60m, btw... There's some older radios out there as well, like the Motorola Micom line.To All,
What I really WANT is a "dedicated" 50W mobile rig for "after the storm R&R" for 60M BUT nobody that I can find actually makes one.
("A little bird" told me that we hams are going to get 25-50 MORE USB channels on 60m , AS THE COMMERCIAL MARINE folks that were once on HF Marine Radiotelephone are GONE forever.)

It went up to 100w in 2012. If you're good with 20w, this one ought to do. https://amzn.to/2KJ0oo7TheDan,
My ARRL book (which is 4-5 years OLD) says 50W ERP max output on 60M.
(OFTEN 10W is plenty for groundwave USB transmissions with a Inverted-V dipole.)
USB and LSB, although there are several versions of it so make sure you can select USB on whichever one you're looking at.Will a Motorola Micom do USB??
