Whats In My Shack
Here's a quick overview of what I use for my Monitoring:
1. Bearcat 895xlt scanner with computer interface
2. Radio Shack DX-440 for shortwave
3. Icom IC-R2
4. Bearcat 55xlt
I use the radio shack #20-176 ground plane antenna up about 20 feet and a dipole in the attic for shortwave. The groundplane seems to work very well for me, although I would like to get it up higher.
