Salutations all my name is Travis
Welcome to my zone.
A world misunderstood by most.
In the world of amateur radio I tend to favor Icom an opinion shared by many as well as disregarded by many! Although I must say, I prefer older rigs as opposed to newer rigs. Newer technology has its advantages. However I tend to favor a wide array of radios, which my friends and family always comment on.
It has been awhile since I have updated my page so I felt it was necessary to do so. As such: Update.
At the moment and for the last year I have been living in Spain. As such I have not been active, on the air. What I have been doing, however, is reading, studying, and preparing. IE: Studying antennas, radios, and possibilities for station design. Much like anyone else, my opinion has been influenced and changed over the years, and it will likely continue to evolve as I age and spend more time in the hobby. Having said that, I have recently (over the last year or so) developed an interest in Ten Tec and elecraft. So, my plans for a new station in the somewhat near future include an Elecraft K-Line.
Well, I promised an update, that's that.
My station is as follows
Icom IC-756 ProIII Primary/Base
Icom IC-7000 w/LDG AT-7000 Base
Yaesu VX-7R HT
Previously owned equipment
(This is all of my recent equipment, there is more but it would take forever to list.)
