My main station equipment is a Kenwood TS-45ØSAT, Ameritron AL-811 Amplifier upgraded with Svetlana 572B tubes, and a LDG AT-1ØØØ Autotuner. I have three antennas covering 8Øm thru 1Øm to choose from, a Cushcraft MA5B shortened beam up 35' on a home brew roof mount, a GAP Titan DX Vertical on the side of my house, and a 8Øm/4Øm trap dipole up 31' at the apex of the inverted V that stretches from the ash tree in the front yard to the fence in the back yard.
Locally I operate a Kenwood TM-261A into a J-Pole antenna up 2Ø' for local repeater work. Mobile I operate a Kenwood TM-7Ø7A with a 5/8 wave Larson trunk lid antenna mount. Although I am capable of operating on 7Ø centimeters, I never do, that band is dead around here with Pave Paws restrictions on the local repeaters.
I also operate portable during CQP most years using my very fine Kenwood TS-45ØSAT with all the roofing filters and a variety of antennas including the very versatile Buddipole antenna system. My portable station is powered by a used 1,000 watt Kipor generator that purrrrrs very quietly in the back ground.
