My Shack

Well I’ve been an amateur radio (ham radio) operator now since 5 April 2016 (just a little over two months).  I figured it is time to show you my followers what my Ham Shack looks like!


My humble shack consists of a Kenwood TS-140S (with optional CW filter installed), Baofeng UV-5RA, TYT MD-380 (UHF), Yaesu FT-8900R, HF with 6M Antenna Tuner (MFJ-945E) and a 30W power supply (SEC-1235M). I have the following antennas: G5RV, 2M/70cm roll up J-Pole (Ed Fong DBJ-2), and a 6M Telescoping.

It’s only FM so no SSB.  I will hang a 2M antenna tomorrow and see how it sounds on 2M.  Let the fun begin!
