My shack until sometime in March.
I realize most hams do not care for the Ten-Tec brand, but I've been using this setup since 1991. The receiver was added in 2007.
News to me. Most everyone I know who has them loves them.
I owned an Argonaut as my first rig, and was later president of the ham club at college that had a Corsair and a Titan amp. Loved those.
I wouldn't mind a nice Omni VI some day myself.
I'm back to operating from a desk in the office, a far cry from my stand alone shack in Oregon. It was fun while it lasted.
IC 7410, SM30 mic, Bencher key, Sennheiser headphones, and n3jfp for logging. All's good.
You really don't want to see my shack, but here's a glimpse on NYD for the zed net.
Here is an updated photo from page 91 of the station with the SB-200 now hooked in. Had to move things around but use to that. May build a shelve for the linear, some people are just never happy. 73
Been a while since I uploaded a picture of the shack and I have made several additions in the boat anchor category. Currently I have it set up with 4 operating stations. (1) 1950's - Harvey Wells TBS50 & matching VFO/HQ140X. (2) 1960's - DX60/HG10 / MR-1. (3) 1970's - IC251 with VHF engineering amp. (4) Modern - FTdx5000/AL1200.
The TBS50, Heathkit station and FT5000 can easily be activated with the turn of a switch and all run through the amp, auto tuner, Giant watt/swr meter, remote antenna switch, speaker so nothing needs to be disconnected or connected when switching between stations. I can also use either the FTdx5000, MR-1 or HQ140X with any of the transmitters by leaving the dow key relay for the boat anchors in the TX position and turning the rig transfer switch to the desired receiver (CW only of course but that's all I operate with the boat anchors). Very quick and easy!
Nice, I see an Heathkit HD-15 up on top, do you still use it, I built one back in 1980 or 81 used it quite a bit then for military calls to the states. been on the shelve for many years now. 73
That's exactly what I built and used it for.
When digital hit (PSK31 etc) I converted it to a digital interface and it worked great. I made several digital contacts over the course of a couple of weeks and it was just not for me so it sits there on top, all ready to go, and gathers dust.
Here's mine, just filmed today.
