    I've upgraded the computer and monitor but most of the gear is still in service. This is the "new" part of the station... the boatanchor part is to the right out of the picture

    Larry, that's a heck of a nice station! Very nice job of rack'em and stack'em. I've looked at those ICOM amps...they seem to stay in high demand.

    How do you like that Tempo? I've never owned one but they're well thought of. 2 x 6146 in final, no?

    I've had that Tempo many years. I actually have two, the other as a donor. I have a external VFO for it, too. I used to talk on it a lot and I really like the Tempo 2020 and other hybrids. These days, it doesn't get used much and I've contemplated selling it.

    I'd LOVE to get the 7300, but I have promised myself that I'll get no new gear till I crack down and get my license upgraded.

    I have a M2 40ML3 and another tower ready to go up as soon as I get my upgrade.

    Ok, I gotta ask. Just how do you get started in the world of Ham Radio? Guns, that was easy, but looking at some of these setups I'm in awe! Somebody ...Help!

    Agreed... it's a classic and built like a tank. Ive operated them but not owned one. I've heard similarly good reviews of the 850.

    I can tell you that my TS140 has worked since I bought it new, and it was the elcheapo of the line (440 /and ....460?)

    That's about as extensive as my mobile shack is, Paul. A TM-281A mounted under the dash.

    Good radio, btw.
