G5VZ

The 2020 shack is quite basic, really.  I have a huge amount of stuff in storage.

Just now (September 2020) the station is to one side of my office work area.

It consists a Sun SDRPro2 transceiver, an amplifier and an LDG 600 autotuner.

On the desk are, to the left, a Vibroplex RSGB Centenary paddle key and, to the right, a J38 mounted on an oak plinth.

The antenna is a doublet at about 10m above ground.

I am a great fan of Palm Radio keys.  It’s such a shame that they are no longer being made.  The Palm Single is a real favourite!  The tiny Pico keys are great, too.
