I'm using a Yaesu 450d with a G-whip 40-20-10 tri-band end fed. I have various dipoles and verticals for experimenting with. I don't know how to upload pics but you all know what it looks like!

Now I'm no longer contesting I'm down to an Icom 7300 for HF, Kenwood TM-D710 for V/U, Cobwebb and Hustler 5BTV.

I do miss my Flex 6500 and Hexbeam though. Should've kept them.

Flex6500 & hex, definitely should have kept. Cost a fortune nowadays, think next time I change will be a flex. Everything is heading that way.

Heres the indoors bit (see pic).....all goes out to an old Silver Rod mounted on railings with the 27MHz coil removed and a homebreww Un-Un fitted at the feed point....makes it resonant on 18Mhz, 21MHz and 24MHz but will tune up with the Versa Tuner from 160MHz through to 50MHz with confirmed contacts on both bands. VHF and UHF taken care of with just a Watson W-7900 mounted on railings too. The Laptop is linked to the 26" TV via HDMI cable and is used as a second desktop space so you can drag across both screens. Nestled under the FT991 is an Albrecht AE6110.

Updated pretty much everything recently.  Sold the 7300, and now running a IC-7610 for HF and an IC-9700 for VHF/UHF.

Antennas are currently a 80-10EFHW  and Hustler 6BTV for HF, and a Diamond x.6000 tribander for VHF/UHF.

Some photos of the main kit in my small bedside radio station that I use. I am a bit limited with space as the station master has taken over the house. Not much room for me. Lol !
-Yaesu FT-991A used for HF, VHF, UHF mainly for 2m simplex and HF simplex & HF and 2m digi modes WSJTX FT8 and 2m C4FM. LDG tuner inline as sometimes 80m is twitchy in places and the built in auto tuner on the Yaesu FT-991A does not sort it.
-Xiegu G90 coupled up to a variable rf amplifier that I turn down the Xiegu G90 rf to around 7 watts to omit 50 watts out the amplifier. I do favour this transceiver for simplex as it has good audio on both transmit and receive. LDG tuner inline with a SWR meter. This set up goes mobile sometimes.
-Old timer Uniden Uniace 300 base station that I use for CB.
-I use a Sirio Gain Master for CB and HF 10m and a LW-20 end fed long wire and sometimes a Hustler 6 BTV for the rest of the HF bands.
-I use a Watson W-50 for VHF 2m and UHF 70cm.
