Yay! Here's a photo of a some tuners, 1 per band:

I particularly like the AC voltmeter reading 122V (is that QRO-60 Hz?), and is that a copy of QST open on the desk?

If BPL goes through you could dispense with the wireless LAN and just use the extension cords, right?

No... I'm smart enough to realize that the datarate of BPL isn't enough..(even though I could theoretically adaptively cancel out my own interference.. now there's a novel thought!)

tower and guy wires!

Hardly.. There's a lot to be said for an antenna that you can buy at Home Depot.
