Closest hit was 3 seconds away, but none into my shack :)

Even though the old cw-filter was good, the lack of full-break-in, 200w, rx-eq and other stuff "forced" me to bring back the TS-480HX.
I had a nice QSO with AG7N, John on 17m this evening.
The aurora was present, bringing that nice tone to it.

Back to old Rig

I put up my old TS-430S after been using a TS-480HX for the last months.
The 480 is a great radio, and it is easy to use. But it had no IF-filters installed, but my 430 have YK-88C (500Hz).

Worked CY0 Sable Island on 15m with my 22 year old rig today.
