Here is my shack starting from the left a Workman (local company) 25A regulated powersupply, a cheap straight-key/oscillator, my Icom 706 (original model), MFJ Versa Tuner II. On top of the tuner is part of the portable collection.

Keith,
Nice setup. That 706 will get the job done. What type of antennas you have?

I'm jealous, somewhat, of all the nice shack setups. I don't have that much room for such setups. Anyone recommend or have ideas for setups in small areas? I currently live in a duplex and don't want to have any interference with my neighbors. Although if it effects the stereo they like to play loud all day long, I wouldn't mind.

At this time I have a 10m omni also made by Workman (is actually an 11m base cut down for 10m), and a home brew 2m super j-pole. I will be hanging some wire for HF but have a small back yard so I am still working out what type/bands I'll be putting up.

The 706 has been working well, last year on Field Day I worked Fiji and Kwajalein on 20m with around 80 watts into a 20m dipole. On 10m I have worked 30 states as well as the UK and Vancouver B.C.

Welcome m3jzt,
Thanks for posting the pics. Although I can not see the pics here at work (firewall blocks photobucket) I will check them out when I get home.

Hope you enjoy!
