My humble shack, as it is for 4 years now. The FT817 is still my favourite and I use it for VHF/UHF and QRP and QRPp on HF. The FT450 is for low power JT65A and other digi modes or WSPR with 5 watts. Do I need other or better equipment? Yes and no. Yes, I will have a better receiver but I don't sell anything else because the price is too high. I am satisfied with my shack as it is. The antenna stays as it is: an end fed wire for 40-20 and 10 meter. I made a RF choke and now I can run QRO (100 watts) without RF feedback now. Not that I will go QRO, but when I need a little bit more... I will never say never.
The good old ETM 2b electronic keyer from the seventies. It still works fine. My CW buddy for more than 30 years.
