Hello to all!

These are the QRP rigs in use at wb8ruq:

 Yaesu ft-301s
    * 160m to 10m, 10w ssb and cw
    * The theory is that this was manufactured for the Japanese
      experimenter class HF license. Any more info on this?
 NorCal 40
    * Great rig! Have worked 35 states with it. Bought it from Chuck (k5fo)
 20m OHR Spirit
    * another solid radio
 Tuna-Tin Two Tx
    * 250 mW, 40m, xtal controlled. Anyone remember this from QST, ca. 1976?
 Drake tr5
    * Selectable QRP levels via the microphone gain control
    * great receiver for contests

+++ How about listing antennas too? +++

      160m: quarter wave, end fed inverted "L" at 20ft
             - badly in need of an upgrade!

       80m: half sloper, apex at 50ft, slopes SSE

       40m: quarter wave ground plane at 17ft, 6 radials
             - currently down for the XYL's gardening season :)
             - excellent performance!
             - hope to get this up higher this fall
          : sloping dipole, apex at 50ft, slopes ENE
             - not too great

 20/15/10m: Cushcraft A3, 3el yagi at 60ft

72/3 -- Ron (wb8ruq).
