Station Snapshot – M3UHQ

This time, Station Snapshot is paying a visit to the shack of Lawrie (M3UHQ) of Plymouth, England. Lawrie is another recent convert to the OS X platform, having come over from windows.

Lawrie’s station is quite extensive. Among his numerous radio are a Kenwood TS-480 SAT, Yaesu FT-817ND, MFJ-971 14MHz monoband radio, YouKits TJ5A, several Baofeng and Yaesu handhelds, and a Superstar 10/12m Mobile. Additionally he has several receivers including an Uniden BCT15x, Realistic DX200, and a Kenwood R600.

His antenna setup is also quite diverse, including a Hustler 4-BTV, a Alexloop, a Homemade mag-loop and a whole host of portable antennas including a Miracle Whip, Wonderland Magnetic Loop, 14Mhz Monoband Whip, 21Mhz Monoband Whip and various Watson/Nagoya antennas for my HT’s. Finally he has a 2m/70cm beam connected to the window frame.

Being new to the Mac, Lawrie is interested in suggestions for software to use and thus I invite you to leave comments below letting him know about your favorite software, and why you like using it.
