Topband: 160 meter QRP transceiver

I received several replies mentioning/suggesting the 817, K2, yadda, yadda...guess I should have been more specific...I'm looking for a 160 meter QRP transceiver, nothing more, nothing less.  I already own top notch QRP rigs (ATS-4 and ATS-3B) but there is no 160 meter module available for either rigs.

There was one reply mentioning the Sierra which I have looked at but...looking for other options.  Can be a separate xmtr and rcvr (as mentioned below, using the Ten Tec 1056 receiver) but I'm not finding much in the way of a 160 meter transmitter.

Sorry for any confusion in my original e-mail.  Regards, Jim Rodenkirch, K9JWV
