    I added my 101E (non-export) my Browning Mark IV and a UHF rig to the bench. I need to buy a bigger bench or get another like I have. Sucks when you have more radios to put in line and you run out of room...

    oh i hear ya Birdy
    the 101e , eats up some area.
    add the yo-100 scope , the landliner /ext. speaker and the freq counter and the area gets really small

    looks great !

    cut it out with the "it's not much" lol.nice set-up.i've been slow going with my set-up and just recently put my 2000GTL on my desk.i have the antenna mounted in the tree i want it in but not as high as i'd like.i'll either figure out a way to get it up higher and then do the lightning grounding thing.or i'll just hire the guy i spoke to before that said he'd climb the tree to mount the antenna.if he'll climb,then maybe i can choose a different tree in my yard that he could get much much higher(i need all the height i can get,living in a low lying town).

    well either way,i had hoped to be all set to dx over a month ago but crap happens and my money gets diverted to other things(broke bastid!!).this week i'll be spending more than normal amount on medicine co-pays since i spent the last week in the hospital with some sort of serious double pneumonia(they told me yesterday,that the day that i came in via ambulance they were very close to shipping me up to the ICU).

    but i may also set up one of my 148GTL's on my desk as well.i just need to buy a power supply for one of the little no-name amps i've got.

    anyways,nice set-up and stop being so modest.i've got much less and it's taken me a long time for even that.

    I have been in this for better than 25 years. There is more test equipment still boxed up but i got both beams up and running and various omni antennas. a couple of friends and my brothers setup makes mine look very small.. lol .. Gravy hope you feel better.

Size:  45.9 KBa small set up myself , granted it takes time to gather , a piece here a part there
    just keeping it real and in hobby terms .... cheap
