This is the shack now active 02172014. My Main Rig is the Yaesu FT757GX2, Yaesu FT-8100, and for 6 meters the Ranger RCI 5054 -DX-100. I am active on the HF digital modes, and SSTV. I also now have a Heathkit SB-200 amp, the first I have ever owned on the air when needed. A Sparta AS-30B stereo broadcast audio console feeds the audio gear and the radios.The Antenna's are a 5-BTV vertical, a random wire that I also have tuned for 80 meters plus a homebrew 3 element 6 meter beam and wire antenna's . My computer is a P3 with a gig of ram and I use it for pro audio production as well as amateur operations. I run APRS from my work truck as KE0VH-2. I am also using the DXLabs Suite of software (FREE! Thanks to Dave, AA6YQ) which controls my rig, does logging and spots DX! Check out Daves amazing site at: http://www.dxlabsuite.com/
