Equipment

Mobile:
I run a Kenwood TM-621a 144 MHz-220 MHz FM mobile transceiver, modified to allow for cross-band repeating, in my car with a Comet SBB-5NMO 2M/70cm Dual Band Mobile Antenna on top of a Browning WSPBR10353 5/8 NMO Mag Mount. While the TM-621a was first released in the late 1980s it is still a very reliable radio for me.

HF Transceiver:
I don't have it up and running, but I have a Kenwood TS-940s. I'm slowly starting to get this up and running but have yet to make a contact on HF.

Home Monitoring:
I have a Kenwood R-5000 (30 kHz-30 MHz) all mode receiver with optional VC-20 for all modes in VHF 108-174 MHz sitting in my living room for basic monitoring during storms and other events. While it doesn't have a UHF option it is great for everything else I've thrown at it.

HTs:
Not my best hardware, but I have a Baofeng BF-F9 V2+ and a Baofeng BF-F8+. They have both given me various transmit issues, normally at the worst times, but I've spent so little on them it was at least a good starting place.
