I like a nice rack
Haven't posted in some time but have a few new additions to the station.
sorry for the late reply
im using a kemwood tr-7850 fm mobile rig
gotta love the hallicrafters equipment such cool old school equipment
i cut my amateur radio teeth on equipment like this sure solid state equipment is the cats meow now days but old school is where its at
I have added considerably more equipment over the last couple months & reconfigured the arrangement. Shortened the shelf to fit between a couple vintage crates, one wooden milk crate from St. Louis & one wooden Pepsi crate marked Marion, Virginian. I got a new chair from the Commonwealth of Virginia surplus store. Added Yaesu FP-1030A power supply, Yaesu FTM 400XD, Yaesu FT2D, Yaesu HRI-200 Wires-X, Yaesu SP-20 speaker, Yaesu SMB-201 cooling unit for the FTM 400. Power meter is a Palstar PM2000A. All jumpers are now DXE-400 Max coax & have added an Ameritron High Power dummy load ADL-1500 in anticipation of future expansion of the station. Have added four eight foot ground rods to the house's existing two rod system. Will be doing further work on the ground system when I add a dedicated 70 amp load center shortly. Outside there is a new antenna for 2 meters & 70 centimeters. It is a Diamond X-200A that is mounted on an eight foot 2x2 which is just sitting in the house's vent stack on the roof. I put it up the day before a major surgery & will refine the installation when I get permission to climb ladders again. While I was recovering in ICU my brother, KN4EOK, brought me a 1958 Vibroplex Vibrokeyer that he found in a Bristol, Virginia antique mall. Should have some further additions before year end but it takes a bit of time to let the radio fund replenish. Great fun building a station a bit at a time. 73 N4XRD, Ralph
