Something from the history, something from the modern time...
 (For the best view some pictures need to be clicked.)

At the left upper corner. Is was my first "big" construction: the power amplifier for 10 meters band about
100 watts output. Vacuum tube GU-29. This PA was used for a long time on the club station UA2KAP
(The Pioneer's House in Chernyakhovsk City, Kaliningrad district).

Below the pictures of different RIG, which has been used in my amateurs practice in
those old years:

Club station UA2KAP. RAF-KV-4 (?). Transmitting part of this station was used during
few years on the club station UA2KAP. In 1959 I made my first AM QSO on 40 meters band.
I can not find receiver's picture, because not remember his type (model).

My first own radio station A-7-B. In 1961 I've got my first callsign UA2ACS and used this
station for 10 meters band in original mode.


  R-673 and    R-311  Krot-M
All  these receivers I used some times since 1962 to 1970.

In 1966 I've got the callsign UA2CS. Here is picture of my HF radio station.
On the top row from the left to the right: home made converter 28/21 MHz, transmitter for
28 MHz (20 W), trans match. Down row: receiver Krot-M  (17 tubes), marine transmitter
type RFT (3.5 - 21 MHz, 100 W).

Home made transceiver, the legendary, so called, "Russian Kenwood" - UW3DI.
This transceiver I build up in 1974 and used up to 1992 with many reconstructions.
On the top is home made transverter for 144/28 and 432/28 MHz, PA for 144 MHz.
Below are power suppliers for transverters and PA.

                        Below are my main RIG, which I using in my everyday operation.

The YAESU FT-1000MP was the first and original of the series of the MP series of radios by Yaesu.
The MP followed the highly successful and superb 1000D radio.
The MP designation is to honour Sako Hasegawa JA1MP, now a silent key.
 It is my main transceiver for HF bands. Great job together with a SDR-IQ, as a panoramic adapter.

The Yaesu FT-736R all-mode transceiver incorporates up to four band modules covering the 50, 144, 432,
and 1200 MHz amateur bands. No one fault during more,  than 10 years of exploitation!
My favorite transceiver for VHF/UHF/SHF bands.

The Yaesu FT-847 changes base operation forever. Now you get three radios in one -- HF, VHF/UHF and
satellite. You get 100 watt output on HF and 6 Meters, plus 50 watts on both 2 Meters and 430 MHz bands. 
After modifying I have 60 watt output on 70 Mhz band also (10watt before!).
My main RIG for satellites and 70 Mhz operation. Also as a mobile station on the car together with ATAS-100 antenna system.

The Kenwood TS-2000 is an all band HF/VHF/UHF transceiver with exceptional features and versatility.
Wide band main HF reception includes:  30 kHz-60 MHz. On VHF/UHF you get:  142-152 and 420-450 MHz.
My main VHF/UHF transceiver for MS/EME operation. Also as a IF for 1296/28 DEMI transverter.

The Yaesu FT-817 is an extremely portable HF through UHF all-mode transceiver, capable of operation on
all amateur bands from 160 meters through 70 cm. It is also considered to be a QRP transceiver - being
capable of only 5 watts output maximum.  In addition to transceiver operation on these amateur bands,
it also is a capable general-coverage receiver providing continuous coverage on all modes from 100 KHz through 56 MHz,
108 through 154 MHz, and 420 through 470 MHz.  It also provides "Wide FM" receive coverage from 76 through 108 MHz.
This is my "trip radio". Together with a different antennas I always can be "ON" in amateur radio, whenever I am...

The RFspace SDR-IQ™ with RF DSP™ offers unprecedented performance with a frequency coverage of
500 Hz to 30 MHz in 1 Hz steps. (Please note the low end tuning range is 500 Hz, not 500 kHz).
It features the fastest and highest resolution plug and play spectrum display available.
The SDR-IQ™ comes with the latest version of SpectraVue™ software. It supports AM, WFM, USB, LSB, N-FM, DSB and CW
with fully adjustable DSP Filter bandwidths. The resolution bandwidth is as low as 0.031 Hz.

The state-of-the-art transverters  XV144 (2 Meters) and XV432 (432 MHz).
The transverters can be used with nearly any transceiver that covers the 28 to 30 MHz frequency range. 
The XV Series provides important benefits for the operator in both receive and transmit modes.
 On receive, the transverters combine a low receive noise figure (typically 0.8 dB) with a high dynamic range front end
(+17 dBm mixer), ensuring exceptional weak-signal performance even in large-signal environments.
Reliable overload detection is included at the IF port to protect the mixer.
 On transmit, the XV's 20-25 watts output will drive most high power linear amplifiers.
 A sequenced keying output is provided for external amplifiers, and a built-in wattmeter using a 10-segment LED bargraph
provides fast power output monitoring. Provision is also made for an optional crystal oven to enhance frequency stability.
Single-port and dual-port IF connections allow use with almost any transceiver.
IF transmit levels from -20 dBm to +39 dBm
(.01 milliWatt to 8 watts) can be accommodated, with a constant-impedance IF
termination for consistent performance.
