gpg to a pipe

I make my backups by tar and encrypt it by gpg.

I do the job over pipe because I don't have too much disk space. The result is 28GB file "backup.tar.gpg"

Then I send the file over ftp to backup server.

Is it possible to send the file directly from a pipe? More precisely - gpg will write it's output to a pipe and ftp will read the data from the pipe.

I tryed to do that, but I wasn't able to force gpg to write the encrypted data to a pipe.

Can anybody help me?

Many thaks.
