Album: The WX2MIG fledgling station photo's

Having sold off all my HAM gear 15+ years ago, I&#039;m starting from scratch with a couple HT&#039;s and soon a 2 meter mobile.....<br /> &quot;OK&quot;....it&#039;s been 6 months since I re-entered the amateur radio hobby, and the shack has made several advancements and changes since my first few sets of photos.<br /> Currently I&#039;m running an Icom IC-2200H 2 meter with a Heil HM-ic Mic, a Uniden Solara DSC VHF Marine, a Uniden SM250KTS 70 cm, and a Kenwood TS-130S with a Heil GM-5 mic, and a Vibroplex straight key. Plus a whole bunch of antennas....

The WX2MIG fledgling station photo's

Updated Dec 20, 2008
Another view of the Metz 2 meter antenna installation taken from the rear.....  
The hinge opening at the rear door gave me a convenient place to fish the coax out and run it to the dash....  
Dash mount view looking straight on, the stock mic has been replaced with a Heil HM-ic, it works and sounds much better than the stock mic...(and I never use any of the functions on those stock mic's anyway)...  
A closer look...the Motorola cell phone pouch is velco'ed to the dash, and holds my phone while driving.....  
The IC-2200H on the dash with the Rat Shack mini extension speaker next to it. View from the driver's seat....  
in this photo you can see that I had to bend the whip a little to made it stand up straight....  
Close up of Metz 2 meter mobile antenna installation on my '05 Jeep Liberty. Used a marine fitting to run the coax through the metal body inside the vehicle.  
My revised shack, I eliminated The VHF Marine, and Uniden 440 Mhz radio, moved the IC-2200H to my Jeep Liberty, and replaced them with a new Icom ID-880H D-Star unit. Both my Dual Band, and HF radios now have foot actuated Heil Microphones, the HF radio  
Side view of my latest arrangement..... Icom ID-880H with Heil HM-ic Mic on a Heil short boom.... Kenwood TS-130S with Heil GM-5 on goose neck...  
One of my previous arrangements showing the Uniden VHF Marine radio (now gone) and the IC-2200H (now in my Jeep Liberty)  
Another view of a previous arrangement....  
Close up of my new Heil Goldline GM-5 mounted to a goose neck, complete with foot switch...(not seen in photo)... At the bottom of photo is the Heil Handi-Mic-ic that's now connected to an Icom ID-880H on a Heil Short boom with foot switch.....  
The only things left in this photo is the Kenwood TS-130S, the Vibroplex key, and the MFJ 949-c antenna tuner, plus I still have the Yaesu VX-170.... Everything else has either been sold, traded, or relocated....

My own home made pipe bombs.......I mean baluns.....
