One, and it's homebrew covering everything from 160m to 6m.

There is however a Ten Tec Corsair II on the shelf behind me in case the magic smoke escapes from my little creation.

Would love to see pictures and specs, general info of your rig. I'm fascinated with N2EY's "Southgate 7" http://www.qrz.com/db/N2EY

 Just one HF rig to my name, my old trusty, reliable TS-570dg. I work mainly 10,15,20 and 40. 73 Jim  W5JJG

Two rigs, an OHR100A and an FT-817 on top of it. That's all there is, there isn't any more.

Only one (IC756PRO) on the main operating desk for 160M thru 6M. Setting around the shack are an Elecraft K1, a Juma TRX2, and an SGC SG2020. Out in the truck is a IC-706MkIIg.

The reason I asked is because I bought a TS 480 while the TS 450 was at Clif's being fixed. Now that the 450 is on the way back, I thought about selling it. But then I thought about having the 450 dedicated to 20 meters or something else.

Two

Yaesu FT-950 with an AL-80A amp, GM-5 mic for phone. (I can also operate digital modes as I have a SignaLink USB connected and the rig is cat cabled to the computer)

Kenwood TS-570S which I use for digital modes with another SignaLink USB.

At one point a few years ago I had 5 HF rigs operating in the shack. I thought "Really, do I need this many?" So I thinned the herd!

Just one: Kenwood TS-940S.
As for bands, all of them I can with my hex beam antenna.

How many?

One - an FT-450

What bands?

Only 6 meters at the moment because that's the first antenna I have put up (made it myself).
