Yaesu VX-8DR - Primary APRS and Satellite-working antenna.
Baofeng UV-3R - much worse signal reports than the Yaesu radios, but incredible battery life and decent coverage. I keep it at school.
9 Amp-Hr Battery
In progress: Softrock RXTX V6.3 - got started, but haven't found time to finish it.
MFJ-1622 Antenna - Works alright, for the apartment I'm living in.
ULTIMAX 100 End-fed antenna
N9TAX J-Pole Antenna (2m/440)
Arrow Antenna (2m/440)
MFJ-259B Antenna Analyser
Yaesu FT-840 Transceiver - Tunes from 10m-180m
MFJ-941E Antenna Tuner - Antenna seems to work a bit better without it, since the antenna needs to be retuned for every band anyways
MFJ-931 Artificial Ground - Again, the antenna seems to work a bit better without. But I haven't done a good study yet, more info later
