This is me, K2RHK. I've been a ham since the mid 1950s, using surplus WWII transmitters and receivers bought on NYC's old "Radio Row," and later Johnson Viking, Heathkit, and Knightkit equipment. I operated 2M on AM with a crystal-controled "Benton Harbor Lunchbox." Later, when I returned to ham radio after a long break, something called "repeaters" were in use. It took a while to figure it all out, but now I operate SSTV, PSK31, FT8, JS8, D-Star, DMR, and even sometimes SSB. K2RHK is my original call.
Here's HF the station in it's current form. Just an ICOM IC-7200 and an LDG antenna tuner. The computer display is showing MMSSTV and the Robotator FTP widget which works fine with Windows 10 forwarding received SSTV images to the qsl.net ftp site, for which I thank both the author and qsl.net. For rig control I use Ham Radio Deluxe and for remote control LogMeIn.
The antenna is a G5RV. This is a picture of the post supporting the ladder line and the interface with 100 feet of RG8X. The antenna itself is (hopefully) higher.

Experiments
This is one of my older hotspots, a Raspberry Pi Model 2 and DVMega board running Pi-Star software for D-Star and DMR. Along with ID-31A and CS-580 HTs and an iPhone cellular-WiFi hotspot for mobile operation it allows linking to the complete range of D-Star reflectors and DMR talkgroups.
