Purchased this a few weeks ago and I was able to get it up on the roof this afternoon. This install included another run of LMR-400 with N connectors and an Alpha Delta 4 position switch. I am now moving onto antenna projects for the IC-7300.
After being licensed for 19 years I finally purchased my first new HF rig. The IC-7300 is currently setup for RX only until I get more antennas up.

Installed coax B a few days ago in preparation for the 2m HO Loop I put up this morning.
