Well, the status of the rigs ahve changed since we are n ow full-time RVers.

The portable shack, is a Kenwood TS480HX with an LDG AT200Pro tuner and a Comet CHA250B antenna. I also carry a 20/40m fan type dipole and a push pole for use and an inverted V.

The truck has the Yaesu FT857D, TurboTuner and a Lil' Tarheel II antenna with lots of Ford supplied diesel injector noise.

That rig looks "VERY" familiar to me. The paint scheme is exactly like the paint scheme that was on trucks I used to drive based out of Cornelius, Oregon many years ago.

Welcome to the site!

Not sure, but are you talking about the mascot??

His name was called "Parcel Packin Papa"

All of the drivers affectionately called him "Parcel Packin Pervert". That little guy was on all of our uniforms....

And By the Way, just noticed that I have never posted correctly to this post so here goes.

House Rigs:
Icom IC 740 vintage 80's HF rig
LDG Z100 tuner
ZS6BKW multi-band homemade dipole at 35 feet
Icom IC2200h 2m
Kenwood TM 281 2m in truck

Very basic setup but it works for us...
