Equipment

Icom IC-7300
Yaesu FT-767 w/6m, 2m, and 440 modules

Antennas: Cushcraft A4S w/40m kit at 95', Cushcraft A50S 5-ele 6m at 100', 160m dipole at 95' apex, 80m dipole at 90', OCFD 80-6 at 40'. Tower is a Rohn 25.

Various boatanchors, mostly Hallicrafters, Heathkit, Hammarlund.

Various amplifiers, including a 4-1000A homebrew, pair 4-400 homebrew, pair 572B homebrew (basically an SB-200 clone in an HT-37 cabinet), a real SB-200, and a Heathkit Warrior (4 811A's). Also have a homebrew triple 813 amp that my Dad built years ago. Note that I do not use any of these anymore. I used the 4-400 amp right after I completed it, back in the early 80's to break through the W6/W7 iron curtain to work a very rare DX station on 80m one night. I got him on the first call after turning the amp on. I've never run more than about 120 watts since that night. All DXCC stations except that one have been with 120 watts or less. ALL WAS work has been at 120w or less. I have just never needed any more power to work what I wanted to work. Gaining db with good antennas is way cheaper than amps, and don't heat the shack up so much. Plus, the antenna helps on the receiving side as well.
