Astatic Silver Eagle D104

Astatic Silver Eagle D-104 microphone sitting in front of an xforce xt800 linear amp, Ranger 2985DX radio, with all the bells and whistles.

This is feeding through the PDC600 SWR/RF meter and then into the Belden 213 coax, up the tri-x freestanding 80 ft. tower and then outputting via the Maco v58 omni directional antenna.

This microphone is one of nine that I possess. They quit making them awhile back cause Astatic went out of business, so I started stocking up.

I picked up my technician amateur (ham) radio license from the FCC about 15 years ago but I like to frequent the 11 meter band instead. Less snobs and more down to earth rednecks such as myself.
