Spotlight N4CQW
N4CQW We moved back in May of 06 and I finally got around setting everything back up. Starting at the upper left hand corner is MFJ tuner, then a mono band 2 meter Icom 2100 and a mono band 440 by Adi 447 radio. Back to the left side is a Kenwood TS-140 HF radio, then a AEA PK 96 TNC for APRS station / Digi and the power supply for all the radios is a Astron SS-30. The desk has a Dell LS 400 laptop used for logging and APRS work... and finally if you look hard enough a to right side of the ARRL band plan is a dual bad Radio Shack HT. The whole system is set up on all things wine rack we decided we were about to toss but works perfect in the shack now. 73, Moe N4CQW and Lucy KE4RLK

Strays Add a Stray!
Dear Icom: For Christmas, I'd like a radio just like the IC-7000, but with the audio of a Kenwood TS-940. Areya listening?
