  I know some stuff, but realize I need to learn more. I can't really explain it well to anyone.
  I know a lot and can explain it to a 4th grader.

    Shack Showcase W6JCW Operating Position
    W6JCW Operating Position The HF rig is an Icom IC-775DSP. To the right is a YO-100 monitor scope, and to the right of that is an IC-R7000 receiver. Above the HF rig are tranceivers for 6mtrs, 2mtrs, and 70cm. On the top shelf is an old DX-40 that I ocassionally use on CW with a straight key. Next to the desk (to the right) is a full legal limit Henry Amplifier. The desk to the left (not seen) houses the computer, printer, and scanner. Antenna's are dipoles for 160 & 80 and a Mosley PRO-67-C beam for 40 through 10 meters.
