Ham shack photo shows:
antennas are home brew - three are 1/2 wave dipoles for 80, 40, and 30
meters and two are full wave dipoles for 6 meters and 10 meters.
One is a 132 foot long end-fed wire for 160 meters
through 10 meters. The rest of the equipment in the photo
consists of power supplies, SWR/Watt meters, antenna tuner, and some
components used for Digital Mode. There is a small collection
Morse Code (CW) keys. Ham Radio Deluxe
is the software connection between the computers and the FT-450D.
