I mainly use CW mode, being on-air since Sept 2003 after many years of phone and digital HAM activity.
I have an EH for 80m and an UltraBeam UB-50 dynamic antenna for 6-40m on a little 6m tower.
I too have a little collinear V-UHF for local traffic.
My main rig is an Elecraft K3, and an Acom 1000 amplifier used only when there's need to put out some more W to be heard. 99% of times it is driven to put out 500W, no more.
Have also a small IC 7000 used sometimes in QTH and /M while going around with my camper using an AH-4 tuner and a 9 mt fishing rod. I found this to be the simplest and well-performing solution in mobile (while parked obviously!). Sometimes I operate a small QRP CW transceiver by SmallWonderLabs, it's an SW40+ on 40 metres band. Really good mini-rig, I am enjoing very much with it.
QSLs are well accepted via Bureau, I regularly update my logs on LoTW too.
73s, all the best!
