Kenwood TS-990S for the Low Bands and Yaesu FT-7900 for VHF/UHF

Hustler New-Tronics 6BTV Vertical Antenna

The Begining:

My father and I started in Ham Radio together.  This was our first station after we received our Novice Licenses, WN9CLQ & WN9CLR.  The transmitter for our station was the "Five Band Fifty Watter" from the 1967 ARRL Handbook.  We built it  together as a father and son project.  Along with the Drake R-4A receiver, Knight SWR Bridge and a Hustler New-Tronics 4BTV with an RM-80 on top, the station served us very well.  It is now on display at ARRL Headquarters in Newington, CT.  The station is fully operational and visitors  are encouraged to operate it.  If your are in the neighborhood, please stop by the ARRL Lab and give it a try!   After many many years they are still going strong.

Post Novice Days:

After we passed our general and Advanced licenses (WB9CLQ & WB9CLR) we added a Hammerland HX-50A for our transmitter and a 40' tower with a Mosley TA-33JR triband beam.  We also added a Hallicrafters SR-42A and HA-26, AM Transceiver, for 2 Meters.

Later, after I graduated college and found an appartment the Five Band Fifty Watter joined a BC-224 Receiver with the 4BTV vertical as my station.  Over the years I slowly acquired the station below when money permitted:

Drake TR4CW, AC4, 34PNB, MN2000, RV4C, MS4, TC2, TC6, CC1, SC-2, SC-6

Dentron MLA-2500A (seldonm used)
