I started with Ham radio in the 8th Grade building a 2 tube CW transmitter and a 3 tube Regen Receiver. Got my Novice license after College and then left the hobby for many years. I started listening to Shortwave again a couple of years ago and then decided to get my license st year 2010. I received my General ticket on 6-17-2010 and its been fun ever since.
This is my station - The HF is an ICOM- 718 bought used. The receiveris a Yaesu FRG-100 with FM adaper. The TenTec1254 General Coverage Receiver was a kit I recently completed (3/16/13). The Yaesu 7900 - is my UHF/VHF transceiver
Alsio have a Yaesu VX-7R and an Icom -R20 Handheld scanner/receiver and a Baufeng UV-3R Mark 2 - (The best $45 2 meter and 70 cm HT around - great sound , shirt pocket size3 watts - I take it everywhere.) Used to have the AOR radios as well as the VR5000.
The Apple Computer in the backround is used for Ham Radio Deluxe, FT7900 software, ECHOLINK and my Weather Station (Oregon Scientific WMR200) all running on Windows PC for the Mac
Oh and if you are wondering, the Transoceanic from 1946 (recently restored) still works - really well on the 49 meter band :)
