Does freebies count? I was given an almost new looking Cole Parmer two-stage vacuum pump yesterday, and today I slapped together a little table as high vacuum station for it, and my turbo.

10^-9 mbar ultimate vacuum when it's finished!

Oh, and I bough an "active inverted magnetron" vacuum gauge on ebay for 10 usd..

I'd say the vacuum gods must be pleased with me.

What software do you use with it? For HF I usually use Linrad

A number of other programs work to various degrees. I use it on my receivers 24 bit sound card. with a big extra ground grouding the two otogether better. That reduced noise from the cables a lot.

 
A SoftRock Ensemble III Rx Kit, a few toroids to wind and some SMD, nothing too nasty. I am interested to compare it to my HPSDR (Atlas, Mercury, etc).
It was a fun kit to build, I have the transceiver kit started but have been too busy to get back to it. (all boxed up and the printed manual in the book case). It works okay, the receiver does about a microvolt for 6DB SNNR, It is certainly usable. It wasn't a hard kit to build although, if your eyesight is worse than my eyesight (20/300) you might want to get someone to build it for you. :) A lot different than that Heath SB-301 I built back in 72.

Oh, you bought that one. Envious. LKB Bromma was a Swedish company known for its very high quality lab gear. Please check for RIFAs in it, because RIFA (now part of Kemet and with no manufacture here) was also a Swedish company..

I don't think that i saw RIFAs when i opened mine, but i didn't really search the PCBs for them either. One thing you should do is to check the 2W 5.6 Ohm power resistors that are between the two secondary transformers and the positive/negative output, those tend to get cooked when someone connects a low resistance load (the 2W resistors are in series with the output). Happened to one of mine, a (ebay) buyer thought that electrophoresis and electrolysis meant the same thing and complained why his electrolysis cell wasn't working... Go figure.

I got a second eprom programmer today, a TL866II Plus - it’s a great little unit, I’m very impressed.

Nice. I see you've got great taste in soldering stations.  :-DD Do you work with optical fiber stuff?

I have a similar setup and I have troubles with these transparent boxes. They tend to fall off. The pegboard is connected to a desk with adjustable height. Whenever I change height the pegboard shakes and boxes fall down :(.

It is a bit vague.
I'm guessing it is because the big binocular microscope looks as if it is mounted on top of the solder station.

I think he means that near the foam pads you see what looks like a piece of leftover fiber glowing in the picture, and the combination of kimtech wipes, alcohol wipes, tweezers, foampads and a microscope is also typical when working with fibers...

I need to add another 16GB to my Ryzen machine,  32GB was not enough while doing some heavy photogrammetry work. Where did you buy this from?  It's all the same price around here.

I picked one of those up a while a go. I never checked what it's performance at 1.5GHz is. It's waiting on my bench at the moment so that I can create a 3D printable housing for it.
