Dean has built what might accurately be called a Ham Shack!

The only addition needed might be a coffee pot.


Operating Position



Left Side, Top to Bottom

   Yaesu 2900 VHF

   Alnico DR-590T VHF/UHF

   Antenna switch below 590T

   The HT is a Yaesu FT-270R

   Station P.S. above blue battery


Right Side

   Kenwood 440SAT HF

   Station computer for logging, QRZ, etc.



The panel with the map hinges down to cover the gear and a door swings shut to hide the P.S.


Tower and Antennas

Here's the shack with the 40-ft tower behind it supporting a Cushcraft Ringo Ranger 2m  ARX2B at the top. On the left end of the crossarm is a Shakespeare Super CB big stick for 10m, etc. On the right is a Jetstream JTB3 UHF/VHF.

Not visible is a G5RV whose feed point is on the crossarm.
