Almost all of these items have sort postings about them – you can use the “search” facility in the right-hand column of this page to find what I’d previously written about the items.
I am sure a missed a bunch of stuff and didn’t begin to touch upon the backups & spares.
All in all the station is working pretty well and at the present QTH it is likely it will only be incrementally improved.
