Some new toys for the shack

Most hams acquire stuff over time for their use and enjoyment. I’m no different. Here are some recent acquisitions.

And recently, I acquired a used IC-2740 for my car. It has been over 9 years since I had a radio in my car. As I commute 100 miles each day for work, having a radio again has been nice, even though repeater activity is not very high. The knobs on the IC-2740 have a depression on them to indicate position of the knob, but black on black was not very helpful. Using a toothpick and some orange acrylic paint, that problem is solved.

Orange paint makes the position marks stand out.
