i am 60! yrs old and a retired technician for the big at$t.
my station consists of a yaesu ftdx 9000, hallicrafters sr400a, hallicrafters ht44/sx117 combo, an alpha 91b. i have a kenwood ts590s for a backup. for vhf ssb i use an icom 275a all mode. a new addition is an all mode yaesu ft 857d do it all rig.
vhf rigs include a yaesu ftm 350r, and a tm 7950. the rig in the garage is an oldie kenwood 7850 and lastly a real oldie, a satan electronics brimstone 144!
the station antennas are a force 12 c31xr dx magnet up on a 72 ft tower, a zero five 43 ft vertical, lots o' radials, a butternut hf9v up 12 feet, and various wires and such. for vhf and above i have a log periodic for 50-1300 mhz, and a 13b-2 cushcraft vertically polarized up at 90 ft. last but not least is a workman uvs200 vertical, which has outlasted my comet (read expensive) antenna by more than 5 years!
dxcc, WAS, but not much else, as my business seems to consume 90% of my time! I wind up just listening a lot, pouncing on the occasional dx i hear.
