Desk finally built - More pics on my Bio page
73 - N3KAE
Hi Bob here, just re-upped my radio desk with some more smoked glass shelving from a defunct CRT tv stand:
1. Icom IC-7000 + Icom ID-880H + Icom IC-208H + Yeasu FTM100DR.
2. Icom AH4 tuner+ MFJ-1026 Antenna Phaser + BHI 1031 MkII & West Mountain Radio CLR/DSP.
3. Halfwave 80m inverted 'L' end fed long wire antenna at 12m.
4. Ham Radio Deluxe CAT.
Just got set up again after a long time off the air. My shack sits in a hole (everything past my driveway is uphill). Attic antenna -- MFJ G5RV Jr -- and an ICOM IC-718 w/ LDG AT-100Pro autotuner. During the room renovation I moved the "shack" about 35' farther from the antenna feed point, used better coax, and added several toroids and noise reduction devices.
After some troubleshooting to find a bad SO-239 installation and repair it, I'm up and running! Made two contacts from Georgia this evening -- North Dakota and the Czech Republic. That's OK considering that an attic antenna can't work!
Clean that license plate. I lost one of mine in Alaska and for $10.00 DMV send me a new pair. HI
That IS one of the old ones that has been replaced.
The SWAN SHACK!
