Thanks to Matt Garcia, N5PTV, for all of his work and contributions to my station.
Update: 1/15/2017 - Matt installed the IF Tap Kit by G4HUP so I can use HDSDR with my DVR dongle, replaced all 20 diodes with BAT85 PIN diodes and opened the radio up for full TX/RX so I can work 60m. It's like having a new radio. The diode replacement lowered the noise floor. It's awesome! Thanks Matt!
My HF antenna is a 29' 4" vertical antenna with a 10' capacitance hat and 120 ground radials. It has an SGC-237 external auto tuner at the base. I use a homebrew SmartLock, based on the original SGC SmartLock, that Matt N5PTV built, to control the tuner from the shack. I am also using a Wellbrook LA5030 mounted on an RCA VH-126R digital antenna rotator on my roof for receive on HF.
My VHF/UHF antenna farm consists of vertical mobile antennas: 6m loop by Freqtester, 6m vertical, CR-8900A, a 220MHz vertical and a 900MHz vertical. I also use a Jetstream JTD2 discone antenna for testing.
