Is it just me or is there a trend for vertical operating setups? What I mean is, rigs mounted on the shack bench,one above the other. I've been operating radios in one form or another since the sixties and I know for sure that reaching up to a rig on a shelf is not conducive to prolonged operating or tuning. Maybe I've been doing it wrong all these years but it just seems to be an awkward way of laying things out. Everyone has their own way of operating and don't get me wrong, I'm not deriding peoples preferred methods but If I've spend an arm and a leg on gear I want it to be at my fingertips. Okay seldom used rigs or standby RXs or whatever may well be better off away from the main operating position but from some of the station pics I see I do wonder how long it's possible to tune around before arm/back fatigue sets in. Just my two cents and maybe I'm just too laid back.
