Equipment update

Further to my equipment listed in my profile, I also have some other Ham equipment which is faulty and in the "I'll fix it one day" category.
A Kenwood TS-690s which has Gen coverage Rx option fitted and gets used as a backup Rx (it doesn't transmit), a Yaesu FT-107 which also doesn't transmit and a Ten Tec Triton 1 which has a receiver fault.
I have been spending quite a bit of time experimenting with Loop antennas including two made from multiconductor flat grey computer cable which cover the NDB frequencies and also the MW Am band.
One day when I retire maybe all the fixit jobs will get done.
