In March 2020 the Icom -9700 was picked up at Handelsonderneming Feenstra, ordered from him and picked up at a radio fair in Het Harde. There I also met PD3F Frank from Wezep. This radio can reach 2 meters and 70 cm and the 23 cm band in all modes. a complete radio I really enjoy.
For my birthday I got the IC-7300 at Hamshop.nl in December 2020, the Kenwood had had its best days and now I have a very nice set for the HF.
The Al-1 is purchased from Vandijkenelektronica and is excellent for use from 0 to 30 MHz. The Alan1530LN is from Welbrook Communications in England and is the best antenna you can have for listening on the HF from 0 to 30 MHz. The Diamond X3000 VHF/UHF, the Endfed is used for 20 and 40 MHz. TX
