I set up the station a couple of years after moving into our new. Like houses in a lot of new neighborhoods, there are antenna restrictions that limit me to what I can set up in my attic.
The current setup includes:
- Kenwood TS-680S HF-6M Transceiver
- Kenwood TR-751A 2M multi-mode (broken at the moment)
- 100W 6M Amp (borrowed from K5TR)
- Wire dipoles for 20M, 15M, 10M, 6M
- Icom T-7A 2M/440 HT (with a dead battery and a missing charger)
As you can see, I still have a lot of work to do and I'm hampered in how much I can set up. Nevertheless, it's amazing what can be done with attic antennas, at least when conditions are good.
My lovely wife Penny gave me this shack as a wedding present. It's set in the guest bedroom's closet. The wraparound desk that she built from scratch provides more than enough room for my typical
activities. The photo shows the layout before I got around to hanging a few certificates on the wall. And yes, she's that handy!
