You can never be "too rich", "too thin", or have too many radios! I have 5  
HF rigs and two amps in my shack and things are starting to stack up but I 
don't  consider selling any of them. Sometimes is is nice to have one to 
lend if a  buddy has his only radio go up in smoke.

I'm in the "thin the herd" mode myself,and am  stymied. I have the
choice of storing or selling the following rigs: (1)  OMNI VI (option
3); JRC JST-245; and (3) a Mark V Field.  All of the  rigs are fitted
with appropriate filters. Parting with any one of these has  been
difficult, so I have done what any respectable ham would do under  the
circumstances: nothing.

I'm primarily a CW op, but the JST-245  has provided all the oomph I've 
for occasional phone  contests.

Question: Do I store them for a couple of years while I try  to figure out
whether there's a ham shack in my future, or do I sell? If  the latter, 
goes first?
