My standard station gear is an Elecraft K3 upgraded to "s". I use on occasion a tube amplifier of one kind or another. My portable setup for operating QRV is mostly my Elecraft KX3. I also operate mobile using a Kenwood TS-50 in the truck. I occasionally use other radio gear. I generally use Heil microphone gear. I have a variety of keyers. I use a K1EL keyer interface for contesting and such.
Software: Win4K3 Suite for Elecraft Rig and Spectrum, Ham Radio Deluxe for logbook, N1MM+ for contesting, and a variety of digital mode packages.
My antennas currently are:
