For kind of an "all-around" type station (VHF/UHF weak signal/sat work, HF digital and SSB, 6m E-skip DX):

Kenwood TS-2000
WMR Rigblaster Plus Interface
Alpha Delta DX-LB Plus HF Antenna
PAR OA-50, OA-144, and OA-432 Horizontal Omni Antennas
Astron RS35M Metered Power Supply
MFJ 300W HF-UHF Dry Dummy Load (for testing)

Let's See:

Kenwood TS-2000 - I have the TS2000X to allow a 1.2GHz uplink to AO-40 which, unfortunately, is now MIA

WMR Rigblaster Plus Interface - I have the MFJ equivalent

Alpha Delta DX-LB Plus HF Antenna - I have a G5RV and a Force12 Flagpole Antenna

PAR OA-50, OA-144, and OA-432 Horizontal Omni Antennas - I am using an MFJ 3 El, 6M beam with a RS rotator; M2, 2M and 70cm Egg Beaters with reflector kits

Astron RS35M Metered Power Supply - I opted for the Kenwood PS

MFJ 300W HF-UHF Dry Dummy Load (for testing) - An old Heathkit 'Cantenna' serves here

WOW! Close enough for Govt. Work!

Hmmm...

Radios:
Yaesu FT-847
Yaesu FT-726R
Yaesu FT-90R

Antennas & Tuner:
MFJ Tuner w/HF/6M dummy load (need a vhf/uhf dummy load)
G5RVjr (lot too small for a full size)
GP3 (2M/70cm vertical)
GP15 (6M/2M/70cm vertical)
"Big Wheel" 2M horizontal omni
"Killer 6" 6M horizontal omni
Currently building eggbeaters for 2M and 70cm
1/4 wave groundplane in attic for use during thunderstorms
A270-6S 2M/70cm beam waiting to be put up
Intend to add second G5RVjr, log periodic beam for 6M/2M/70cm use, 2M and 70cm horizontal beams

Power Supply:
Astron RS-70M
MFJ 20A switching
124 Amp/hour battery bank
600 Watt inverter

Two computers (both old, one laptop, one tower)
Intend to rebuild even older computer
I also intend to add preamps (and maybe power amplifiers for vhf and uhf)

Very similiar setup to yours.

I am in the process of rebuilding my station after taking it down when cancer struck and they thought I was going to die (sure fooled them!!).

I should have pics up soon.
