    K2QB After 15 years , finally back on the air. TS940S-AT with a TL-922A linear. Tuner is a Dentron MT-3000A. Pro-Search Digital control unit turning a Hygain HDR300. Antenna is an Optibeam OB9-5 at 45 feet. Other accessories include a Microham USB III interface for RTTY and PSK31, Logikey K-3 keyer with Bencher BY-1 paddles and a Datong FL3 Mulit-Mode Filter. Lot of "Old Stuff" but it all works great.
