    Are you proud of your ham radio shack? Most of us are, and a few among us have put together installations that are worthy of special mention. If you have such a shack, we'd love to see it, literally!

    This summer, the folks at QRZ will choose a few of the best ham shacks around and schedule a personal visit for an interview and feature article on our front page. We'll highlighting you and your shack, your antenna farm, and even your mobile rigs to share your story with the worldwide QRZ community.

    We're looking for radio installations that will show off the capabilities of ham radio and how others might be inspired to do the same. We're hoping to visit all types of QRZ member QTH's, from simple, single radio desks to the some of the largest, most sophisticated ones ever built. What matters most isn't cost and complexity but rather neatness, attention to detail, and usability.

    If your shack is chosen, it will appear in one of a series of QRZ feature articles with plenty of pictures and commentary about how it was put together, what its unique highlights are, and how you use it to enjoy the hobby. In addition, you'll receive a handsome QRZ Featured Shack award, suitable for framing.

    This summer, we'll be visiting stations in the southeast, eastern seaboard, and New England. If you would like your setup to be considered as a Featured Shack, drop us a line at along with a snapshot or two of your QTH. We'll confirm receipt of your email and will be choosing the finalists within the next few weeks.

    I really like that slanted operating desk! Don't know what the thingy in the upper left of the slanted area is with all those knobs or jacks. Very classy. I need to use this design in my next attempt at a Radio station desk, as the slanting makes it very easy to use and see the radio. I see he uses a 19 inch rack panel mount with handles to hold the radios in place. Don't know how I would hold a FTdx5000 in that arrangement. But now, I have to have a special light shining on the front of the rig just to see the knobs and lettering. Took some great carpentering skills to build that spectacular desk!

    I really like the look of a slanted desktop but have never had one. Does anyone know what is the angle of the backward slant is relative to vertical. 73's WØCBF

    It appears to be an angle of 30 degrees, plus or minus 5 degrees.
