    Hello everyone,

    Following the publication of my videos on my amateur radio station I received several requests on the wiring, here is the video which shows the behind the scene of my station.

    Hi Pascal,
    Just wanted to congratulate you on a very well produced video. The photography, audio, editing and your presentation are all first class!
    Yes, it is unusual to see what goes on behind the scenes! Thanks for going to the trouble of making this.
    Best wishes,

    Can you give information about the cable you use for grounding?

    Phew...I thought the back of your desk was going to have the precision of a nuclear power plant control room cabinet...thankfully it looks as chaotic as mine;)

    I agree that the wirmold ends up becoming non-useful when constantly adding/subtracting equipment. A few thoughts, none of which I've done yet: Consider shortening chassis RF ground braids as much as possible; perhaps use a solid copper ground strap vs. ground wire for the main RF ground to earth, and label wire terminations at both ends to reduce frustration when removing or reorganizing. The Brother P-touch label maker has a tape designed for sticking to cables.

    Hope to move my station to a larger space in the next few months...I was going to leave the operating position desks 30 inches off the wall, but your idea of sliding or rolling desks may be a better solution as it doesn't permanently take up more space :)

    Nice presentation Pascal. I especially like the fact that your videos are very well thought out and you get to the point without and non essential verbiage which wastes the viewer's time. Thanks for another fine video.
