On HF, I am running a Yaesu FTDX-1200 and a muli-band dipole hidden in the attic as lightning here can be rather intense in the spring.   One day I will get brave enough to hang a 40 meter dipole in the 70' tall trees behind the shack. However, the multi-band with a tuner has gotten me to the UK a couple of times and easily covers the states and Canada when the bands are open.  I normally run barefoot but sometimes engage my AL-811 to help if the signal is very close or very far away.  Backed up with a Kenwood TS-450S.

On VHF/UHF, I am running an Icom ID-4100A (also for DSTAR) and the Comet GP-9N vertical at about 25 feet in the air.  Backed up with a Yaesu FT-2900R for the local effingham repeater. 

On mobile, just a cheap QYT VHF/UHF pushing 50 watts on vhf and 35 watts on uhf.  Sorry, but I dont know the model number of this radio off hand.  To be honest, I would NOT buy another one of these radios as it is so aggravating to program, no on/off switch and the volume button sucks royally as it binds against the microphone plug in the front of it.  It is one radio I would not cry over if it was ever stolen. 

While I tend to listen more than I talk since I have a tad bit of mic shyness, I am still learning quite a bit, having good fun and really enjoy some of the people I have had the honor to speak with this past 18 months in Amature radio.

Photos are from our home in Rincon, Georgia (Approx. 15 mins northeast of Savannah, Georgia) on 12 acres.  While it is usually hot and humid 8 months out of the year here, snowfall is a once every 15 year event.  But Jan 2018 here was a historic 5+ inches for this Southeast Georgia community. (The clumps of green in the tree in the background is Mistletoe.)

Each spring we always host a family of geese as they always lay eggs on the small island in our 1 acre pond.

My youngest daughters first large mouth bass from our pond.

Currently restoring a 1959 F100 pickup.  Below the frame has been reinforced and front suspension from a 2003 Crown Vic has been bolted into place.
