You can see my radio setup below. The IC-736 was the first model hf rig I ever owned (i cut my hf teeth on a loaner swan 260). I traded it away for a newer version but missed it sorely. An IC-736 is once again my main rig. You can see it seperated from its twin brother, the IC-738, by their little brother, the IC-821h. The twins are always bickering about who is cooler. "i've got a built in power supply!","well you can't run off the 12v solar/battery bank without a lossy inverter!","well i've got the 6m band","yeah, it makes you look fat too!". The IC-730 will be heading to a fellow ham when he upgrades his ticket. The Yaesu FT-817ND is the heart of the QRP station. It goes in the motorhome when we get to go camping. With it is the Small Wonder Labs PSK-20 transceiver. The QRP station sits on the PK-232MBX/DSP. Drop in charger for the IC-T90A as well. On the pull out keyboard drawer is the Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 102. This is also part of the QRP station (radio 2) and is used through the PK-232 to 738 as well (radio 1).
If any kind soul wants to donate some SP20 speakers and an HM-14 and an MB-23 (with correct screws for the 821) and a UT-102 and a UT-84 and both AG-25 and AG-35, I'd appreciate it :)
While I'm a big computer hardware buff, I'll keep it short. All self assembled. AMD Phenom II x6 black, 16gb ram, ATI 7970 video out to a 3x1+1 eyefinity display. 3 monitors appearing as 1 super wide monitor with a 4th independant monitor via hdmi (this allows me to say watch a re-run of Quincy and hear the audio OR JT Alerts via hdmi isolated from any other sound device in the system).
Good health to all from Rexx-all...
Good DX and God bless.
That's about it :)
