I still maintain an ICOM radio setup for HF digital work and for 2 Meter VHF and 2M/440MHz FM.

The radios include the ...

ICOM 756 PRO-III (160-6M), 746PRO (160-2M), and the

Yaesu FT-8800R (V/UHF) and FT-817 QRP (160-2M, 440MHz).


My current antennas includes:

Antenna Type Bands Covered (with Antenna Tuners)

160m full size dipole

80m, 60m, 20m

End Fed 80m Half Wave Dipole

80m, 40m, 30m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, 10m
