Old Shacks


I believe in the photo there is a Icom IC756 Pro, Kenwood TS-450 and Icom IC-706MKIIG.

This would have been my Novice-Extra time period shack.  I upgrade from Novice to Extra within about 14 months.  This was during the period of Ham Radio where there were 5 license levels with 3 morse code proficiency tests.  If you look closely I was using an Kenwood TS-820S for HF and a Kenwood TS-700SP for 2 meter VHF.   I was also sporting a Commadore 64 for Packet and AMTOR modes.  In the corner behind me was a homebrew HF amplifier using 4 811A tubes.
