The Shack

The shack consists of a Yaesu FTDX5000MP Limited with Heil PR-781 Microphone, Alpha 8410 linear, a Palstar antenna tuner for 160 meter, and a Yeasu FTdx-1200 for back up HF. I run an ICOM IC-910H for 2 meters, 70 cm, and 1296.

Outside there is a inverted L for 160, an inverted L for 75, and homebrew GAMMA fed vertical for 40 meters. I also added a full wave beverage for 160. It also works great on 80/75 and 40. All the antennas are resonant except the 160 Inverted L requires tuning above 1.875 Mhz. On the tower a Innovoantenna 6 element 6 meter yagi.

Just finished converting a Kenwood TL-922 to 6 Meters. I have most the hardware to run some EME on 2 and 70 in the future. I enjoy 160,75,40 meters, as well as 15 and 10 when atmospherics permit.

I have a 4 element 20 meter monobander going up soon, as I beleive it will be needed with the on coming decline in the solar cycle.
