Equipment

I operate here on a Kenwood TS-940S that I have had since 1989,that I bought new.And I have recently bought a Kenwood TS-590S that I am really enjoying,that has an excellent receiver and a few bells and whistles that my old reliable TS-940S doesn't have.I also run a Kenwood TS-480HX in my shack and my mobiles as well @ 200 watts.I run an Ameritron AL-80A amplifier that I rarely use being at 3,000 ft.above sea level unless I need that extra help to get the longer distance stations.At my qth I am able to reach 2 meter repeaters over 100 miles away with a 5 watt HT.
My antennas are all resonant dipoles for all the hf bands and on 6 meters I use a Cushcraft 5 element yagi and on ten meters I use a homemade Moxon 2 element wire yagi.In the near future I plan on putting up a NA4RR Hex Beam and a Tennadyne T10 Log Periodic really soon.I also use a "N4DA" Double Bazooka for 75 meters that works very well at 3,050 ft above sea level.Very fortunate to have this MountainTop QTH and it really is great for uhf and vhf operation.I run a MXL R144 Ribbon Microphone that gives the Kenwood radios excellent audio,that I am very well pleased with, and a very cheap price tag compared to the Heil PR-781 and the Heil PR-40 that I run as well on my old Kenwood TS-940S that is noted for excellent audio for an old rig that I will never part with.I am a big collector of microphones and enjoy trying them and have gotten quiet a collection of microphones in wanting to compare and try the different ones.Microphones are my weakness at the hamfests .I am also doing a little D-STAR with my newly acquired Icom ID-51A Plus HT that is a very surprising HT from Icom that works very well on D-STAR worldwide,an amazing little piece of equipment for an HT.
