Our Shack

The W3VC shack looks just about like you'd expect for a club that's been around for nearly a century. It's full of great old equipment, and some new things as well. Our primary radio is a Kenwood TS-2000. Alongside the base station is an Elecraft KPA-500 500W HF amplifier. Our primary HF antenna is an off-center-fed inverted vee for 160 meters through 6 meters, and a Cushcraft beam for 6m/VHF/UHF. We also have a dual-band VHF/UHF antenna on the roof of the turret for general-purpose use, in addition to our UHF repeater antenna (currently under repair) and our digipeater antenna.
