Been awhile since I've taken new pictures of my shack, but here they are.

The main equipment for Ham Radio is:
Icom IC-756Pro III (HF & 6meters)
Yaesu FT-1000MP Mk V (HF)
ACOM 1000 Amp (HF & 6meters 1KW)
Heath HW-16 & VFO (it works and fun to make a few QSO's on)
Icom IC-910 (144MHz, 432MHz, & 1296MHz SSB/CW)
Tokyo Hy-Power HL-350Vdx (2 meter SSB/CW amp 330 Watts)

Military UHF Listening Station:
BC-780XLT's (7 of them, great MilAir scanners)
BC-785D (Not the greatest MilAir scanner)
BCT15X (very good for MilAir listening)
PRO-2006 (good in its day, but out dated as per todays receivers)
PRO-2052 (not bad for MilAir scanning)

Antennas for Ham include:
Hustler 6BTV Vertical w/1,500' of radials (80, 40, 30, 20, 15, 10mtr + mod for 17mtr)
160 Meter Inverted L (shares radial system of 6BTV)
80 Meter Inverted L (shares radial system of 6BTV)
Mosley Mini 3 element Yagi (20, 15, 10mtr)
6 Meter loop

Antennas for VHF/UHF MilAir:
Create Log Periodic (100MHz - 1300MHz)
Antennacraft ST-2 (Omni directional)
These antennas connect to all 11 scanner via Stridsberg MCA-204 & MCA-208 amplified multi-rx couplers)

Enjoy,

Well sort of some pics of antenna far.

I dont have the best pictures of the antenna but here are some.
The first is of my HF Vertical (Hustler 6BTV) ground mounted w/1500' of radials. Not a very good picture as it hides itself very nicely against the tree-line.

The next are my VHF/UHF SSB/CW antennas (sorry, I don't do FM) The top antenna is a 25 element loop yagi for 1296.1 MHz made by Directive Systems. Next antenna down the stack is a 11 element Cushcraft 432.1 MHz antenna (I've replaced it with a 15 element Directive Systems 432.1 MHz yagi - 8' boom). Next antenna down the stack is a Directive Systems 6 element 144.2000 MHz yagi. The bottom antenna is a KU4AB 6 meter loop tuned for 50.125 MHz and it handles 1KW from my Acom amp just great!


The next photo is of my tri-band Mosley yagi for 20, 15, 10 meters. The yagi at the top is another Directive Systems 144.2000 MHz yagi.

The final picture of of my Create Log P. antenna use for VHF/UHF military listening.

gewecke: The disk came from Staples, it was about $200.00. Its just a simple "L" desk that I made a couple modifications too. All the shelving you see I built myself. Staples doesn't sell the exact desk any more but they have ones very close to it. Just look for an "L" desk and they work great for a shack desk.

It's pretty awsome george, I was certain it was a custom built desk.
Again, spectacular station!
