When you have them all over the floor of the shack, and you keep tripping over them...  Grin

The formula for too many, which equally applies to things like: cars, fishing poles, guns, tools, etc is:

Too Many = 1/0

   I've got a few (7) HT's, and a few (3) HF rigs. My main fetish is golf clubs,
   and I have a few (7) sets.  My other fetish is fishing rods, and I have a
   a few (12) poles.
   note: Last year there was a nationwide academic study published that said
           48 % of the approximately 35 million guns in America are owned by
           just 3 % of the adult population.
   note: I'd like to see a similar nationwide academic study published that says
           what percentage of all functioning Ham Radio gear is owned by what
           percentage of licensed Hams.

                           73,

I have 3 HF rigs Kenwood TS-590, Kenwood TS-530SP, and a Icon Pro III,  When I buy the new Icom 7610 I will sell the Icom Pro III to help pay for it. but may also get a good Kenwood 790 for UHF VHF all mode, so about 4 to 5 would be the limit. OF course nothing wrong buying a rig at a hamfest playing with it for a year sell it and try something else for a year, and do this every year.

KA5ROW, thanks for the reply. I had never heard of the TS-790. Must be kind of rare, but they sure have good reviews here.

I have a 'thing' for old tube type ham equipment. Working on an old Yaesu FRDX-400SD right now.
I've been told they are pretty lousy radios, but my passion is finding a ugly, old radio and refurbishing it. I 'might' use it a few times and then it's off to the next. Being retired and the fact that nobody wants this equipment is a 'win-win' for me. My problem is I'm running out of room. ha ha
I have a lot of the new (insert yawn here) stuff, but the old stuff is what 'floats my boat'.

enjoy

Judging by the state of much s/h gear you see for sale, the floor must be a common place to store gear........and the owners must wear size 12 steel toe cap, hobnail boots......... Shocked

Most all get a couple weeks a year, but they do have it pretty good.

No way, I see some empty spots on those shelves! Nice shack by the way.

Vince,

The storage cab pic is fairly old and I've added a few more since then.   I think there's only 5 slots left.

Mark,

The Drakes are R4B and T4XB.   I've recently gotten this desire to have "twins" and here are 3 different examples, and I recently picked up another pair of Gonset twins with AC supplies as well.

How many is too many?
If you're asking that question, you're not there yet.
