EB5AGV's Radio Station

Keep them glowing!

Welcome to my Radio Station page. Here you can see my station as it evolves over time. Please, browse forward to see it evolving...

Old Radio Station


This was the old shack (and my first one!) I had until June 2000 in Benetusser (Valencia). Now it is history...

Current Radio Station


This is my new shack at current QTH in La Canyada (Paterna - Valencia)

The little girl is my youngest daughter, Sara, who was 2 years old when the picture was taken. As you can see, she likes playing with my radios...
And the 'small' tower cointains most of my 'heavy metal' receivers... From down to up there is a Lorenz 6P203 german receiver, a Racal RA-117, an EAC R-390A, a Collins R-388, a Hammarlund SP-600JX and, temporarily, a Eddystone 1004. Missing 'big boys' are the RCA AR-88D, a Racal RA-17 and a R-107.

This is a another partial view of my new shack. Here I had sorted the rigs and were in a more logical order.

Another view, with more additions (Drake TR-7 line among others).

Here you can see the (growing) test equipment section. On this workbench I work on rigs. Test equipment includes several oscilloscopes (why do I need so many ;-) ?), spectrum analyzers, RF generators, VTVMs and so on.

This is the shack in August 2005. First view is the Main wall section

Here you have a detail on the Classic Station, composed of Collins S-line, Drake B-line and Drake TR-4Cw/RIT. On top there is also a Yaesu FT-102, a great classic also. And just to the right of this picture, there are some more classics: Collins KWM-2A and Drake C-line

These are the main VHF/UHF Zone. On upper shelf there is a Yaesu FT-225RD (2m allmode) and an FDK Multi 2700 (2m allmode). And on lower shelf you have a Yaesu FT-736R (50, 144, 430 and 1200MHz allmode), an Icom IC-211 (2m allmode)

Former Classic Receiver Tower has evolved to Classic Twin Towers, as you can see. Left to right and top to bottom you will find a National NC-183D, Eddystone 830, RCA AR-88D, Collins 51J-3, Racal RA-117, Hammarlund SP-600, Racal MA-79, EAC R-390A and Lorenz 6P203. Heavy metal!

This is the Auxiliary station, which is close to the computer so I can enjoy also radio while working on PC. It is composed of Yaesu FT-901DM, Yaesu FT-102, Sommerkamp FT-277ZD (an European Yaesu FT-101ZD) with FC-901 and SP-901P, a Kenwood TS-940SAT, a Kenwood TS-930SAT, a Philips FM-1000 (converted to 2m) and a Hammarlund HRO-5.

And this other is the Repair Station, where I repair gear. In order to keep in touch with the World, I have installed some equipment: Yaesu FT-890AT, SP-6 speaker with Timewave DSP-59Y, AEA DSP-232, Yaesu FT-212RH, Yaesu FT-712RH, Alinco DR-570E. In the picture I was working on my Neuwirth HMT SiO (a large unit!)

After some test equipment additions, this is the last version of the RF LAB in December 2005.

There has been plenty of activity on last couple years. I added a new shack section and lots of new toys :-)
