This is my in house shack with a ICOM Pro 3 (now a 7600) and Alpha 87A.  The equipment to the left is my 50/60's vintage Viking Adventure transmitter and Drake 2B receiver. Those rigs bring me back to my roots and where I started in 1961. See pic of 1961 at my Novice station, We've come a log way since then...
