Ive been interested in radio my whole life. I started out listening to Shortwave Radio in which I still do.I started as a ham in 1992 with the no code tech licence N8TZX. And was not on for a long time.  I had to renew my licence and up graded to Extra. I'm on HF, 6, 2 meter and 70CM. The current rigs I'm using  is a Kenwood TS590SG With a Heil PR40G Microphone complete with the HB-1 Boom ans anti shocck mount Power is from a Ameritron AL-80 the original. Then fed into a MFJ -986 roller inductor tuner and out to a Gap Titatan DX Verticle Antenna. Also a Kenwood TS-2000 that I use for 6, 2,and 70cm bands the TS 595SG and the TS 2000 audio is fed from the Heil PR-40 through the use of a MFJ-1263 Microphone / Radio Switch. And last but not least is my trusty old back up rig is my TS120S with external VFO. All HF rigs can be fed into the Gap Titan DX. As for for the TS-2000 it is fed into a Comet GP-15 about 15'FT. above my roof.

Top pic is of my Gap Titan DX . This my primary HF antenna for now. I purchased this antenna used for $50 from from a retired couple who no could longer use it. I had to purchase another $50 in parts from Gap to complete it. so far the Titan works perfectly. it is mounted 15'ft. above ground. The Antenna below is a Comet GP-15 it is mounted 15'ft above my roof. It covers 6 meters, 2 meters and 70 cm.

 

The next Pic is was taken at Spitzer Marina during Sunset with our Lorain Lighthouse in the background.

This is a closer view of our Beautiful Lighthouse in Lorain, Ohio
