  I've been a ham since December of 1992. My interest started back in the late 1950's by laying on the grass outside my neighbors basement window and watching him as he talked around the world . He was Whiskey 8 Nancy Norway Robert(W8NNR).
   I made a deal with my Wife , that if I'd quite smoking, I could take the money I was spending on cigarettes and buy radios. The Rest is History as they say, from a start of a nearly new (used less than 2 hours  ) TS 830 S ; to today's. shack.
 Now its an FTdx3000 with the Heil Classic mic driving an Ameriton AL-881H using 4-572B tubes. The tuner is an MFJ-986.
The other radio is an FT991. Antenna's are a Hygain 3 element Tri-bander at 45 feet and a VHF/UHF tribander at 50feet. Home made antennas are  a 6 meter dipole at 60 feet in the pine trees, an 80 meter OCF dipole at 40 feet for the FT 991 and finally an 80 meter horizontal  4 sided loop at 50 feet up in the trees(my favorite, works great). Finally each Yaesu rig as its own Windows 10 computer running AC Log by N3FJP. After 25 years in radio I can now say I have a nice station but not too crazy.
          73's Everyone and thanks for listening , Good DXing.    WG8AR
