Active with: FT-101ZD MK3, Ascom SE550 (4m), Icom IC-E2820 FM & D-STAR, Philips FM92 (2m) &  Yaesu FTL-7007 (70cm). ATU for HF is the Yaesu FC-902. CW Key is the Hi Mound HK-703. Numerous hand portables, including FT-50, Motorola HT-600E etc.

HF Antennae are a Homebrew Vertical, for 30m up, and for 80m & 40m, a homebrew "G0FH" antenna, which is basically a dipole, with the "hot" side in an Inverted L configuration, and the "cold" side earthed via a length of 15mm copper pipe about 1.5m from the feedpoint, and the remainder laid out on the back lawn, for the grass to play with. Thrown up in a hurry, and was very much temporary & experimental at the time, but it offers a VSWR below 1.5:1 across the whole band (80), and numerous NA stations have been worked on 80m with 100w, so it's been made permanent!! Hell, I even accidentally tuned it up on 17m one day (wrong switch on the FC-902) and worked 3B7C with it! A lot to be said for some 1.5mm electrical cable and a length of copper pipe... not forgetting the 75mm square of 25x75mm wood for the feedpoint!

160m is impossible from home QTH, owing to a +60db noise level!

2m & 70cm is handled by a Comet GP9 dual bander, and 4m by a G4CJZ "Coaxial Dipole" http://www.70mhz.org/coaxdipole.htm

Also using a Coaxial Dipole for 6m FM, energised by a GE Rangr US PMR radio.
