    Dr. Q (K8QS) and Tom (WA9TDD) show examples of ham shacks in history, from the hobby's early days to the present, fixed and mobile. The ham shack is cultural, not just technological, a "place" that tends to define the hobby, even a kind of "man cave." Is the ham shack disappearing in the age of mobile communication? Join the conversation.

    Not unless you’ve got some really “crappy” equipment, no.

    Fun video. Thanks for posting. Nice to see something other than self promotional or watching someone operating a radio videos.

    Thanks so much! We actually found a guy with a rig in the bathroom, so we figured we spoof the shack as an out house. Much more fun coming, including ham radio pranks! Quin, K8QS

    Marc, great to hear from you. Hope all is well. We'll do a show on amps at some point and I'll talk about the Alpha I sold you -- among many other amps. Quin, K8QS
