Attic Dipole
I have a MFJ G5RV Jr 52 foot Dipole in my attic. I have a MFJ-915 Isolator connected to a 1:1 home made Balun. This configuration gives me a 1:1 SWR reading on 40 through 6 meters.

Outside Inverted L
I also have a home made Inverted L wire antenna which is 67 feet with 4 radials.  This antenna works very well on 80-10 meters. Below is a picture of the INVERTED L.

DC Coil For 160m
I made a 160 meter DC Coil for my Inverted-L antenna.  This Coil has a diameter of 4.5 inches and has 23 turns of 12 gauge enameled wire around the PVC Pipe. I then ran the wire vertical for 1 inch and add 2 more turns around the PVC Pipe to make the Grounding System. The Ground System helps me to eliminate a lot of the noise associated with 160 meters.

HF Radios
My shack radios are the Kenwood TS-590 100 watts and the Icom 706 MKIIG 100 watts with the LDG IT-100 auto tuner. I use the Icom 706 MKIIG for portable work.

Digital Mode
I also enjoy digital modes and use my Kenwood TS-590 to interface with a Dell Laptop. I am using Ham Radio Deluxe version 4 to control my radio along with PSK31 Deluxe version 4. I use this set up to remote into my radio from my IPhone or any other computer with internet access. I find using remote a great way to enjoy my radio when I am away from the shack.

IRLP/Echolink
I am also running an EchoIRLP Repeater, Node 8426 (IRLP) and 98426 (Echolink). The EchoIRLP system is a Sony Vaio Pentium IV running Centos 4.9 Linux with a version 3 IRLP board. I am using two UHF GE MVS Radios into a vertical 440 antenna. 

I also have a second IRLP, Node 8987 running on 2meters. The IRLP system is a Dell Pentium IV computer running Centos 4.9 Linux. The radio is a 2m VHF GE MVS which is connected to a 2m/440 antenna approximately 35 feet in the air. This gives some good local coverage.

My third EchoIRLP Node, 8756 (irlp) and 352267 (echolink)  is a home brew Raspberry Pi with a Baefong BF-888s UHF 440 radio wired into the irlp board. It works amazingly well for mobile or portable or even as a base station. I am using a PPTP VPN to tunnel through my router at home or on my iphone when I am using it mobile/portable.


My Kenwood TS-590 Audio Settings

Below are my TX audio settings for my Kenwood TS-590 with the stock mic. I get great audio reports. Feel free to use them.

buttons on front of radio:
speech prossecor on
speech prossecor set to 100 (press and hold the "PROC" button)

mic(alc) gain set to 51 (leave the speech prossecor on when setting the mic gain)

menus:
25 set to 300
26 set to 2700
29 set to HARD
30 set to U (go to program ARCP-590 and adjust the TX EQ. below are the settings)

TX EQ setting through ARCP-590 program on computer
set TX EQ to U and adjust the eq to:
0 set to 0db
300 through 3600 set to +6db (sliders are all the way up)
3900 through 5100 set to 0db

If you like working DX, set the 300 to 0db

Enjoy!
