Spotlight N4QCV
N4QCV Here's my ham station with an Icom IC-751 Heil ICM mic and a 300 watt dummy load and my MFJ 20 amp power supply. I want to get a 40 amp one. My Icom IC751 works great after I had it worked on. My antenna is an MFJ 1620 , 1617 HAMSTICK OR HAMTENNA which works well with 100 watts. If I can hear them I can work them. I want to upgrade to an Icom IC-7200 next year but I will keep my Icom IC751.

Why do all of the ham radio websites look like they were designed in the mid 90s and not following 21st century web design practices?
