Primary station consists of a Kenwood 570DG feeding a variety of dipoles and end fed wires.  Also have a Yaesu FT-817, FT-897 and an Elecraft KX1.
Field station deployed using my battle scarred Buddipole, MP-1 vertical or whatever length of wire I may have on hand.
When in the shack the rig will often sit on or near 10.106-116 or 7.030-40 listening for lonely QRP stations.
