Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort
Flex SDR-1000 TS-590 ICOM-7100 LDG Auto tuner, the usual assortment of baluns, wires, power supplies etc. Of course Vibroflex paddles (now if I can only remember my CW). Hexx Beam for 20, 17, 15, 12 & 10 meters at 50 feet. Full size dipole cut for 160 meters at 40 feet. MFJ rotatable dipole for 80 / 40 / 20 and Cushcraft rotatable dipole for 40 / 20 / 15 & 10. Several custom built computers running Windows XP, 7, 8 & 10 and Ubuntu Linux. These serve the ham shack as well as media servers for the home along with a few technology related uses. Mobile: Icom 7100 and HI-Q 6-80 Screwdriver mounted middle of pckup truck bed. Can also run the rotatable dipoles from trailer hitch mount up about 8 meters when parked and not in motion :) . I upload to EQSL as a courtesy for those that use this service. I also use Logbook of the World (LOTW). Please upload your logs to LOTW for me. I QSL 100% direct mail and Buro. No SASE required. For 3905 Century Club contacts I'm good in both bureaus. The shack is 12 x 20 feet and includes 2 operating positions and all equipment is easily moved and reconfigured due to the use of a french cleat system. One end of the room has a large TV and couch for my 'man cave' but this area can include even more operating positions for multi operator contesting. In September 2014 I had the chance to purchase retirement property with an eye toward a dedicated hamshack detached from the house. I found a great property with a 2000 square foot horse barn that can be converted as needed. This took me off the air for several months but when the dust cleared I had not only a decent shack but all the comforts to surround it, These 'ham shack extras' make this the Ham Resort. There is a dedicated bedroom, exercise and relaxing facilities including a bar and eating area.
