Station set up is ICom-756, Kenwood TS-2000, ICom 2m rig, Tokyo HL1.2K amp, N3FJP logging program and MFJ 998 Intellituner. I am using the LDG ALK-2 to interface both radios thru the MFJ tuner, HL 1.2 amp and antenna system. This allowed me to use the tuner and amp for both radios. The Antenna farm consists of a 55 foot Tri-Ex motorized crank up tower, with a Hygain TH6DXX and a Cushcraft 12,17,30m rotatable dipole on top, Hustler 5BTV, 160m long wire, 40 & 80m inverted vee, home brew 6m vertical and Cushcraft 4 elm 6m beam.
I am a Semi retired Real Estate Broker and own & operate the largest Property Management Company in the County with my orginal wife of 41 years. When taking my 29' Nash trailer out to the lake or camping I have a Icom 7200, AL-811A Amp, LDG tuner, Alpine Screwdriver antenna, and Hustler Mobil antenna with resonators for 10-80m. Depending on how long I will be staying determines what antenna system I'll use. A week or more I'll use the Alpine Screwdriver and on weekends the Mobil. Both the Tlr and tow vehicle have an ICom 2400 2m rig.
