I had a set up much like this back in the late 70s. I sold it to some one
in the Grand Rapids, or Kalamazoo area. I loaded the whole works in the car
and met them over by Greenville or some where in that area. Possibly the
Williams (Boyd's) parking lot.
AT the time I lived just south of Breckenridge.
That was one of the nicest rigs rigs I owned.
At the time of the photo I didn't own any Hallicrafters, but shortly there
after picked up a beautiful HT-33B that looked like new. This was back when
I worked for a living<:-)) (Looking South) Lower left is the Drake C-line,
Tentec (544 I believe), Omni-5, and a Dentron MLA-2500 setting atop the
antenna tuner. Top row left to right, it the KLM 2-meter-440 satellite
tranceiver, Kenwood 7800 2-meter rig, Prototype Heath HF solid state
tranceiver with remote VFO, Heath conduction amp (SB320?) (I saw a very nice
one at the Midland swap the 15th of June this year, Dentron Peak reading
watt meter, and finally the 75A4 setting atop the KWS-1. Out of the photo to
the right at the West end of the room was a Collins S-Line (Winged Emblem)
http://www.rogerhalstead.com/ham_files/boat3.htm I don't have any photos of
the antennas at that site that I can find.
Being on a pension with SS, my current station is a good one, but it is no
where near as elaborate although I did build a pretty hefty antenna system.

I'd be very interested and even put them to use, but unfortunately my budget
would not stretch that far. <sigh>
If you have the time I would like to see a photo of the set up though.
