The photo below shows my shack in the basement of my house. Equipment shown on the top shelf includes various power
supplies. The next shelf starting on the left shows a vintage Drake TR-3 and matching RV-3 all vacuum tube HF transceiver. Next
to the TR-3 is a Yaesu FT-857, power supply, and LDG Z-100 autotuner. To the right in the white case is an Instek GDS-840S
dual-channel digital oscilloscope. In the middle of the shelf are various morse keys and misc stuff. To the right is a signal
generator and a remote antenna switch.
The bottom shelf starting from the left hods a KAMplus
TNC and an Alinco 2m transceiver. Just to the right are
stacked a Tokyo High-Power 6M transverter, an AT-100Pro
autotuner and an MFJ sound card interface. These last two
items are connected to an Elecraft K2 HF transceiver.
Next is a Kenwood TS-2000 and a pair of SWR meters. On
the right side is a Drake MN-5 manual tuner (mated to the
TR-3) and an Aliance antenna rotator control head.

Below the shelf on the far left are parts bins for verious
replacement parts. The desk holds a TV, notebook, and
various accessories.
My daughter Joann pose at the base of my tower. It is 66 feet to the
top of the tower. Above the tower can be seen a 3-element cushcraft
A3S beam antenna. It covers 10m, 15m, 20m, and 40m. Above this can
be seen a diamod V-2000 vertica that covers 6m, 2m, and 15cm.
Strung from the tower at about 56 feet is a 160m windom antenna.

The tower consists of seven sections of Rohn-25. The bottom section
is set in 4 feet of concrete. Two sets of guys each terminate at an
anchor also set in concrete.
