Equipment and Modes:

Icom IC-9100 MF, HF, 6m, 2m and 70 cm.  Elecraft KPA-500/KAT-500 HPA/Tuner 600 watts MF/HF-6m.  Carolina Windom at 55 feet one end, 40 feet the other (slightly sloping), and a 75/80m Inverted-V with the apex at 50 feet perpendicular to the windom.  160m Inverted-L is working  great (using FT-8, mainly).  Adding radials daily. I do all modes, but especially like FT-8, lately.  Satellite antennas coming soon.    May add another WARC dedicated dipole.  

DSTAR using a DVMega and IC-91AD (REF, XRF, DCS and XLX and CCS 3118866) and on HF using the IC-9100.  Monitor REF030C on DVMega and REF024B on W9TE/R.  You can find me checking in to the HF DSTAR testing net Saturday 7PM, Sunday 10AM and 7 PM.  We coordinate on REF030C and http://hf.dstar-relay.net/. 

DMR using a Tytera MD-380 (what I neat little radio!) via our local repeaters K9MMQ on DMR MARC or N9MTF on Brandmeister (a bit hard to hit from my shack, though), and I have a Shark RF Openspot.  I scan all for the most popular talk groups. On K9MMQ you can call me on North America, on N9MTF Indiana Statewide, and I am listening a lot to TG3100 (The Bridge) on the Openspot, if I am not cruising other TGs. 

Fusion is in the future for use on repeaters (need a HH), but I do link to America Link - Wires X (room 90 on either FCS002 or FCS003) using the Openspot crosslinked to my DMR HH, but this is not all that often, mainly in the later evening. 



Yes, it's a messy shack.  It is always busy doing something!
