- FT-1000MP Mk-V or ICOM-7600, used with low power into HLA-300plus PA (RMA Italy)
- Palstar BT-1500A Balanced Antenna Tuner (UFB!) , connected to a 2x10m dipole
- 3 Band Spiderbeam from April to October each year (bring it up to 12m with an russian military antenna tower - old but stable!) - SWR optimized, so I don´t need a tuner
