Welcome to the shack. Things here are designed for SO2R and multi-single operations.
There are three relay boxes scattered around for antenna switching. One is on the tower to the north, the other is in the field to the south, and the third is for RX antennas. The two black boxes to the left control the two transmit clusters. They can be routed to either radio for SO2R or multi/single operations using the blue 2-position switches above them (uncompleted in this photo). The rotary switch to the right of the 2-position switches is to change the direction (NE/SW) of the beverage or to use whatever other listening antenna happens to be up at the time. The amplifiers are behind the operating chair and are rack-mounted.
Here’s a view of the big old tank-circuit amplifier. It doesn’t get used much, thanks to newer options. It has 4-811A tubes with a 1500V power supply. This will likely become a monoband 80m amplifier for the multiplier station or a quick switch for the second radio on an SO2R weekend.
