Spotlight OE3SGU modest shack
OE3SGU modest shack This is the modest appartment shack of OE3SGU. IC-7000, IC-703, FT-817, MFJ-9020 and assorted HT's and SW-receivers. I operate mainly at the 5 Watt level, 99% CW (low power - no problem) into indoor antennas. I am coming closer and closer to my QRP-DXCC. Picture was taken by my loving wife Michelle whose patience with me on my addiction to HAM Radio is unbelievable...
