For HF I use a Yaesu FT-101ZD with an SP-901P external speaker, FV-101Z VFO & FC-902 antenna tuner, E-V MC300 microphone, a straight key, and a set of Vibroplex Brass Racer paddles on an MFJ keyer. Antennas; a G5RV and Cushcraft AP8A. I also use a Kenwood TS-830S which is quickly replacing the Yaesu as the primary rig.
The VHF side is a Kenwood TM-231A & IC-2000H (Jump Kit) and a VX6R, few Icom HTs.
Mobile I use a Yaesu FT-1900r and a Kenwood TM-281A
For HF portable I use an IC-735 (Jump Kit) with mod for QRP and a Heathkit HW8. For more of a challenge I use a Rockmite on 40M.
I enjoy QRP and portable operation & antenna building and tube gear. I rebuild and restore old radios and ham gear and build both solid state and tube equipment. Solid state has its place. Tubes are more fun.
