This is the station layout we use for the two running stations. Both are similar located back to back.

Bottom left: Antenna selection box. In the picure selected is 40m EU yagi (green LED is lit).

Middle left: Spiderbeam rotator control.

Top left:2 by 6 -antenna selection control box.Both stations have similar boxes that arecontrolled by band decoders (back up is manual control, the knob in the center of the box). Own band is shown by a green LED,other run bandis shown by a red LED. Automatic control (by a band decoder) is indicated by an orange LED. These boxes also take care of not transmitting on the same band by utilizing Yaesu/Elecraft TX inhibit system. If both stations are on the same band, the LED's at both stations are orange and the TX inhibit signal is sent to the radios.

In the middle you can see an RF power meter, located on top ofthe band decoder. Logging computer and CW paddleare in the front.

Bottom right: Yaesu FT-1000MP (we have several of these of different versions, all equipped with roofing filters and adequate IF filters).

On top of the radio:

2el 15m rotator control and on top of it a CW keyer control (homebrewed some 30 years ago).

ZXR LBA1160/80/40/30 band passfiltered preamplifier with 0-25db adjustable gain for low band RX. On top of it isan ICE band pass filter. Both of these are controlled by the band decoder. Change band on the radio or in N1MM and everything at the station follows the change. Easy!

Following pictures show the operators and results since 2012.
