I operate HF CW and satellites. My main HF rig is now the complete Elecraft K Line (I have to update the picture of the shack, as it still shows my TS-850s and AL-80 amp).  I got into Elecraft rigs by deciding to build the K1 over 10 years ago, and really loved the experience (the K1 is visible in the picture).  I have the four band version (no longer available) and it is a hot little rig.  I enjoyed that building experience so much that I got the K2.  Building that successfully is one of the highlights of my ham career (I'm an attorney, not an engineer).  That's a great little rig as well.  In the fall of 2015, I was able to get the K Line, including the K3s.  I am really loving that setup, but I can't let go of my K1 and my K2.  I put too much personal sweat into them!

On the birds, I operate a Yaesu FT-736R into a 30 element (CP) yagi on 70cm and a 14 element (CP) yagi on 2 meters.  Here is a close-up picture of my satellite operation position.  Also included in the picture is my Knightkit T-150 Xmtr and my Knightkit R-100A Rcvr.  I had an R-100A as my novice receiver back in 1968.  I have made QSO's with the Knightkit gear, but the T-150 works much better if I keep it on crystal control.  I sold the T140 that you see in this picture.

I'm also an amateur astronomer.  Here is a picture of me at the Texas Star Party with my 16" Dobsonian reflector.  That's a 105 mm refractor I'm using for a spotter scope.
