Station Photgraphs

Seeing Rich's station in one of the other threads made me think about a thread.

Let's see your home stations.

You said you only have antennas for 20m. I need FN64 on 6m/2m. If you are in an apartment, I doubt you have the yagi antennas to even think about making this possible. I guess there is the potential of a great E layer opening, but no way we can sked that. I have worked Maine on 2m before, but it was a different grid. No big deal, the grid will come some day on those bands.

Hope to see ya this weekend on 20m RTTY.

I'll Play.
My Icom 718 and Icom 207H powered by the ever reliable Astron.
I use a G5RV for an HF antenna and a Diamond 50 for 2M amd 70CM.
The dust is due to having the station in storage for 6 months for remodeling. Now if I could remember where my keyer is. I need 6 meters also.

I really like my 718. Real solid rig. Did the MARS/CAP mod and have the CR338 high stability crystal. It will pump 100W just about anywhere.

Yes! The 718 is a wonderful radio. I have a 706 also but greatly prefer the 718. I'll probably use the 706 on 6M after I get an antenna. The thing I like about the 718 is it's ease of use. I don't need the manual to change settings. I have had the 706 longer and still need the manual for it.

R. Emmelman:

How do you like your Radio Shack HTX-10?

I just picked up a couple of them on eBay (one NIB and one "lightly" used) and haven't had time to get them setup yet.

Thanks.

I bought the HTX-10 after a several year absence from HF. I used a "fat" dipole and worked the world. I was impressed with the performance. I thought it would be a glorified CB but it seems to work quite well. I even used it for PSK31 as well as RTTY and SSTV. Here is the link to my 10-M log from a couple years back using the HTX-10. It is a great little rig for mobile use.
