    W6EZ -Just a little space in the bedroom. I don't have the Space I need for a real station, so I just keep adding to the pile of radios in the corner of the bedroom. Kenwood Ts850sat along with DSP 100, SM230, SP950,ALS600, Hiel Goldline, W2IHY eq, JPS ANC4, and NIR12, all feeding into an old KW Matchbox and then to a big loop. There is also a few of the usual vhf and uhf things, but I really prefer HF.
