W1LIC station photo

Post by W1LIC » Tue Jan 05, 2010 7:00 pm


Here is my station which includes my Kenwood TS-480SAT, an old HP desktop running XP, my Kent straight key, J-37 key, Bencher paddles, Alinco DJ-175 2-meter handheld, and the Yaesu FT-2900R 2-meter transceiver.

Behind the keys and next to the Alinco is the original W1LIC station license issued to my Dad in 1938.

Very nice! I know this is an old post, but it looks like a nice, clean station.

Right now, I'd be too ashamed for anyone to see my radio desk. It' much worse than my kitchen table. This picture is old too. It's got lots more stuff that I'm working on now. Good thing that I don't have an XYL!

I'm with you guys. I'd have to clean the place up before I'd be willing to show it off

Amazing to us old timers

It always amazes me how little space is needed with todays stations. Gone are the great oak desks with hundreds of pounds of equipment on it.

Do I miss the old stuff? Not at all. The new stuff is very capable and so very reliable. Doesn't require tinkering all the time.

It hardly looks like a Ham Radio Station from the "good old days" In the late 60's to early 70's I had a reciever and transmitter that took up most of a full sized office desk !
(E.F.J.Viking Valiant transmitter and Hallicrafters SX101a receiver)
Those "modern" radios look like little, harmless toys ! :D
73 from K8JD, SKCC 1395, Centurion 18, Tribune 12, Band Endorsements; 160, 80, 60, 40, 30M, 20, 17, and 10M

Ham radio is real Radio, CW is real Hamming!
