Amateur Radio and Misc Science:
Live short wave amateur radio and studio. ps: I'm not using this much now...
I have sold the Omni 7 and initially set up the FT100 and AL80b amp without the Icom 756 P3,
however, I decided to keep the Icom. So here is the latest setup I am using as of December 2009.
Here is a satellite view of my house and yard. There are several hidden antennas in the back yard.
An example of lettering I did on the front panel of my AL80b amplifier using a PC and printer.
Here is the word document you can use or edit to create your own lettering as I did for my AL80b.
