I’m currently using a Icom IC-7851 and IC-9100
and a BM-800 studio microphone.
The microphone has a totally remade pre amp and LF bandpass filter.
Also using a HF-AUTO Antenna Tuner for the beam’s and a BT1500A Balanced Antenna Tuner
for my 450 ohm ladder feed horizontal loop (80-10m)
I’m using a horizontal loop for 80-10m at about 17m height – using ladder line to the tuner.
A G5RV antenna (80m long) for 160-6m at about 20m height. Working quite well
And a vertical for 160-80m from Spiderbeam.
In edition I will have a Spiderbeam 30-20-17-12-10m HD at about 17m total height above ground.
Changing 15m for 30m is an experiment, but so far works grate. Extending the booms to 6m , and added cables for 30m – 3 elements
Mounted on a MC-1200 Steel Tower – on the garage roof – 3m height above ground. (Working on it :-))
For 6m I’m using a 6 element EAntenna 50LFA6XL (12,33 dBi – 22,6 dB F/B) at about 15m height. (Same tower and rotor as the Spiderbeam)
My SE X80 VERTICAL HF RADIAL FREE ANTENNA 80 TO 6 METRES – is NOT working wherry well, will not recommend it!
And – not to forget – Using the MeP-AB10 BP100 AIRBORNE 10 /.400″ coax from Messi
About 1 S lower (local) noise in RX mode, and super TX performance. I can really recommend this cable
Well, I moved to Austria (Güssing) in November 2018 – And now have my Austrian license number : OE4KSF. My previous number was LB8FH

For now a few photos from my shack and hobby room. (In Norway)
My biggest hobby at the moment is developing and building QRP equipment.
This also includes units for WSPR transmitters and receivers.
