This is what the shack looks like, September 2012
I am a HAM since 1977.
My favorite (radio-) activities are VHF/UHF DX, AM with vintage equipment and (top-band) 160m. Running an IC-910 on 2 and 70 with Beko lineairs up to 400W and SSB electronics masthead amplifiers and an FT857 for mobile operation. 17el. M2 at 22 meters for 2 and 21el. at 24 meters for 70; vertical for 6, 2 and 70 and 23 and 13cm yagis at 23 meters.
On HF I use an IC-7700 and a TS850, with a home made symmetrical tuner or LL-tuner and a twin lead fed 2x25m sloping dipole from about 21 meters down to 17 meters and an inverted L antenna 20 meters vertical and 25 meters horizontal.
Other interests are ATV, AM on 80 meters.
Other hobbies: motorbike, photography, hiking, computer programming, etc. :-)

The 'AM'-corner of the shack (Feb. 2014), with the BC-610-H, the home-brew AM transmitter, the GRC-9, the E-309 receiver and a CR-88-B.
This is the latest 3 band (160, 80 and 40 meters) AM transmitter. It uses 3 tubes, 2 times EF184 and a GU50 in the final (in the metal case, just above the tank coil), producing around 55 Watts carrier, 170 Watts PEP. It is either crystal controlled or by means of an external DDS.
The birds like my antennas too
Mobile with the Tarheel M300A on 160-10 meters (Jan. 2014).
