Licensed since 1968. Currently enjoying my newest toy, the IC-7300. It complements the 706 MKIIG, my Pro II, and (soon to be fully retired) my Drake C line, with the TC6 transmitting converter.
No aluminum in the air - I run all wire antennas (not my preference, but that's all I can do):
75M - dipole
60M - dipole
17M - sloping dipole
All other HF bands, 80' of wire connected to an SGC231 autotuner.
Favorite band is 17M, trying to work SSB DX with the 7300 running only 5% power (< 5 watts), IC-2KL turned on only when needed.
Other activities centered around experimenting with NXDN - the most spectrally efficient digital voice system to date above HF - in amateur radio
Quality, 'spectrally efficient' digital voice communications in only 4 kHz of bandwidth !!
The CT Amateur NXDN Network - what we're doing in the northeast U.S.
