Rig: Kenwood TS-590SG / 100 Watts, as of January 2016
Previously: TS-430S

Antenna: OCF (80-6)(primary) or Multiband (40-10) dipole

Tuner: LDG AT200Pro II autotuner.

Logger32 is fantastic!!!

This is the station setup with the old TS430S in a small oak shelf unit I made to keep it all neat.

I mostly use a straight key, specifically, the home made key I made in August 2015! Although I'm a long time wood worker, this was my first time machining. The base is wenge, an interesting hardwood!

I also have my original novice key, the cheapo Japanese model with the 'ball bearing' trunnion. I also have a Navy flameproof and a WT 8-Amp made by Brunnell. I have a Vibroplex paddle and an El-Key paddle. Only about 400 of the El-Key paddle's were made during a four year period.
