Hmmm....

that stuff, at the top, seems like some lensing from Zenit, MTO and then some; are you from Russia :D ?

Good catch on the lenses. I am not. But some of those lenses are. The lenses were for my various rangefinders and film SLRs years ago. Now I hang them via adapters on my Sony A7 digital. Old glass on full frame digital body, the best of both worlds.

Mine is generally messy, generally something is in pieces and not a lot to look at.. but I enjoy it.
Hmmm, has been so long since I have posted pics in a forum I have forgotten how the Image thing works..

How do you like the ATS120? It seems to be doing pretty well for you.

The TEF6686 goes from $101 to over $200 on Amazon, and none have reviews. Did you get yours from there, or AliExpress (or elsewhere)?

My listening post doesn't have a lot of high priced gear. The monitor on the left controls an inexpensive RTL-SDR.BLOG V3 dongle while the monitor on the right controls an Airspy RSP1A. The little monitor on the bottom is the control head for a Uniden SDS100 that is dedicated to local 24/7 P25 monitoring. Still, even though it's low-end, I think it looks cool in the dark! :D
