It is humble but it is home
This is the current shack, as much as I could get in one photo... the two Ten Tec Omni VI rigs are slaved together, the one one the left can be used as a second receiver. They are controllable under CW Skimmer and NaP3 software for click tuning when needed. Main amp is a modified SB-220 that covers 160 thru 10 meters, and all WARC bands. An ALS-1300 can be switched in line. Either the Dentron MT-3000 or a tower mounted MFJ-998RT remote tuner can be used.
My shack is pretty simple got a xbox in it an icom ic 735 mfj 948 got a tv in it and a record player which i listen to in there
I love the 520, i have 5 of them!!! I like the display, does it act as a frequency display for the 520?Is it accurate?
Hi Brian ,
I have had the TS520 since 1980, i replace the HV caps as they were shot, the frequency display does show the frequency
on tx but not spot on.
I have also 2 TS520S and a TS820S , i just repaired my old TS530S , i also have TS430s and a TS440s plus axtras .
TL922 , MC50S, MC60, MC85 Speakers, SM220. AT230 , LIST GOES ON.
I have these old radios because i can keep them going unlike the new gear oh dear.

The shack is minimal at present following a move from Ohio to North Carolina. As time and resources permit I'll get it back up to snuff. For now I am running an Atlas 180 and an Icom IC-2300 with indoor antennas, an Alpha Delta DXCC in the attic, and a Comet dual band verticle in the bedroom. I'll be looking for an IC-706MKIIG in the near future, I've had the original the MarkII and two MKIIG's. 73 de Ray
The Motorola equipment looks similar to the paging stuff that I used to service back in the early 2000's. Brings back memories
I finally built my new shelf and put my radio's the way I wanted....
