N0UYN Ben shared his station details;

For HF I have a IC-7300, MFJ 939 Tuner my antenna is a 90 ft random wire oriented just a few degrees off North-South. I have sent and received HF Winlink messages using Vara HF, ARDOP and Winmore when still supported. I have also had successful exchanges using Peer 2 Peer (P2P) the greatest distance using P2P was a station in Warren Co, Virginia at 1766 miles and a station in Vero Beach Florida and Radio Only (RO) a couple times.

For VHF my equipment consist of 3 old Motorola GM300 16 channel single band radios these have to be programed with a computer and a Motorola program. I use Packet with this thru the only RMS gateway I can reach. and UHF I have a Motorola Maxtrac 16 channel single band radio. It uses the same Motorola program to program. My antenna is a dual band Deseret J-Pole.
