Picture is a bit out of date since the Yaesu FT-2000 now sits where the Kenwood TS-870 used to. Loved the 870, but really love the new technology of the FT-2000. One great rig. The 2k drives an Ameritron 811H on seldom occasions, and out to either the Gap Titan DX or MA5B.
Been in the hobby since 1976 and have held several call signs as I moved and upgraded. Then had the chance to get my initials and just had to do that. Started by building the Heathkit SB-104 which served me very well for 25 years. Then on to the Kenwood that I had always wanted. That served me for 10 years, until this year (2011) when I just had to get the Yaesu FT-2000. Only the 100 watt model, but I am really impressed with the quality of this thing and the ability to "hear-them-work-them" with just that 100 watts.
Love to chase DX with 10 meters as my favorite. Have 202 confirmed countries on that band. Most of that was done in the last sunspot cycle and really looking forward to some good propagation to try to complete Honor Roll on 10, in the next couple of years.
Also enjoy just rag-chewing to learn more about the people I QSO with.
Bless and thank you.
