My Shack

 

IC-756PRO connected to amplifier LK500-ZC, antenna is a ground mounted Butternut HF-2V vertical
for 40/80 meters with 122 radials (2 km in total) and a Cushcraft R7 for 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30 and 40 meter.
 

IC-7300 connected to amplifier IC-2KL, antenna is a dipole for local talk on 80 meters.
One AT500 auto tuner connected after the IC-2KL and one AT500 connected after the LK500-ZC.
 
In the picture you can also see my VHF/UHF IC-207 and my "spare and toy-radio" IC-706MKIIG

 

My "Sunday shack" under construction

Somewhere in the house I shall build up a nostalgic "Sunday shack" for my favorite radio IC-751A.
I have 2 x IC-751A, IC-2KL, IC-AT500, IC-PS30, IC-RC10, IC-SM8 and 2 x IC-SP3.


My favorite  spectrum settings for the IC-7300

After some testing of different settings of the way the spectrum is presented I have stopped with this.

You can see some captured screens here (comments in Swedish, sorry)

Here you have the values if you want to test it.

Have you seen how the Icom remote program looks with the IC-7300?

If not I have a very short (and bad) movie taken with my mobile phone here.

 

My Remote System

I have  a remote system that, believe it or not, is at no extra cost.

I have a IC-7300 tranciever and, as you know, it is ready for sound and control by a USB connection.
An old computer, saved from the scrap yard, is connected to the radio and I use a phone/tablet for the remote control.
The free version of HamRadioDelux is installed in the computer and for sound transmission I use Skype.
A free version of a remote desktop program (there are many available) is used in the computer and in the phone/tablet.
Of course I have a phone subscription that will allow for some GB data within the price but that is something I would have
anyways, so no extra cost there. I will not describe the configuration of the system but I can assure you that it works ok.
 
First I call up the Skype account on the computer from my phone/tablet and the sound connection is ready. Then I start the remote
desktop programin my phone/tablet and by that I can manage almost everything on my radio except for turning it on or off.

I just bring the radio to a desired frequency, press the PTT on the phone/tablet screen and a QSO is on its way. (If someone would hear me of course Hi)

There are a few other systems on the market that may work better/easier but in this case everything is free, provided you already have the things required.

 

My Mobile Radio

IC-706MKIIG connected to a Helical whip for 80 meters on the middle of the roof via an autotuner IC-AT130E converted to SO-239 instead of wire connector.
The totalt height is 4.2 meters. When I don't want that height I use a Hustler 80 or 40 meter resonator instead,
directly connected to the 3/8" mount on the roof. Sometimes is the car traceable via APRS, click here
 

My Workshop

I spend a lot of time here, repairing and modifying my own or fellow hams equipment.
Sometimes there is a live picture from the workshop here. (username guest, no password)
There are different logins depending on the browser you use, info on the login page.
 

In the workshop I can use radio as well but most of the time I only listen to qso:s when I'm "working".
The IC-745 (now a IC-751A) is for qso's and test of amplifiers. To the left an amplifier if I need more power.
The coax from the workshop goes down to the shack where it's connected to antennas through a AT500.
A Bird 4 KW dummy load for testing amplifiers without burning my coax or antennas standing on the floor.

 

My Wardrobe

I'm working as a computer technician and in my wardrobe I have some stuff to play with
when the radio or workshop starting to be boring.....
 

My spare time

Another big interest for me is hockey, especially the Swedish Hockey League SHL. 108" HD TV and surround does the trick.
