W0LED-10 The State of Things 6/13/17

Hardware line-up remains the same although I've pulled out of my small collection of used (but currently unused) rigs a Kenwood TR-7730.

I've used this radio with a TAPR Beta Board, a TNC1, a TNC2, a couple of MFJ1270Cs. It was my T-238/Dallas Semi 1-wire Wx Station radio for more than five years until the wind direction 'dart' fell off in the middle of a Minnesota winter.
