    Shack Showcase WV8PC WILMINGTON DE
    WV8PC WILMINGTON DE My updated shack is modest but effective. I use a Kenwood 480 HX,LDG AT-200Pro Autotuner,Yaesu FT-7800,Uniden BC796D,and Alinco DM-330MV to power it all. Antennas include a Ground mounted Hustler 6BTV and Wire for HF,and Arrow antenna J Pole for 2 meter and 440. A 6 meter loop and 2 meter loop are also installed for use if desired.
