    Shack Showcase K4DGW's somewhat messy shack
    K4DGW's somewhat messy shack A set of Heathkit twins that I put on the air occasionally with a straight key. Primary rig is a TS-570D(G) that I use for SSB and CW. Digital rig is a IC-718. Also setup for 2m FM and 2m packet. Been in the hobby less than 2 years and I am enjoying it very much.
