Spotlight Here is the 'new' shack at LX1QF
Here is the 'new' shack at LX1QF I finally created this month's working 'shack.' It includes a TR-7A, a Paragon, a Titan amplifier, an automatic tuner all connected to a AV5 Hy-gain vertical. Also an Icom IC-245, a HamLink phone- hamradio linking unit, an Alico DJ-X10T receiver, Maha charger, switching power supply, a Yaesu VX-2R and a mini scope round up the equipment. Off the image are Heathkit SB -102/SB-200, TS-930S/TL-922, Drake TR-7, Yaesu FR-50/FL-50 and Drake TR-4A/R -4Cs. I like rotating my equipment as it gives me the feeling that I am using 'new rigs' as well as forcing me to keep them in excellent condition. 73s

If your wife ever complains about the cost of amateur radio, tell her you are thinking about becoming a vintage car collector.
