Second contest weekend and new rig pics:
FRANKINSPIRED 10GHz rig under construction, Thursday, Sept 16, 2004. The rig's name comes from inspiration after looking at WB6CWN, Frank’s radio. Notice the heatsink-on-plywood construction.
Still under construction, Friday, Sept 17, 2004. Rig functionally good enough at 05:45 local time Saturday Sept 18. 11W SSPA installed but not yet hooked up. LNA also to be installed soon!

Would you believe WA6NIA's vehicle has room for THREE complete microwave stations and other gear, with room to spare? This monster truck has more room than my bedroom at home!
