    New pic of the "shack".

    If you don't count the computer, most of what I use now-a-days can fit in one hand. SDRs, all-mode receive coverage from about DC to 2ghz. I have six antennas up for various monitoring tasks.

    I have a mobile rig above where this is pictured. Haven't turned that on in months. 100+ repeaters in my reach on 2M/70cm, but not much to listen to other than no-traffic nets.

    Gave up transmitting a couple years ago and went back to being mostly an SWL. I guess I've done everything I want with my amateur ticket. When I'm not feeding PSKReporter, I monitor a lot outside the ham-bands. There's plenty of generous hams sharing remote stations, for the rare times I get the itch to QSO.

    Station evolving

    April 8th 2018 Have now begun trial set ups before I construct a station cabinet. In the below image I tacked a scrap piece of underlayment plywood to a couple five inch high two bys. I am trying to work out dimensions needed for a shelf, table height & widths. I also now checking dimensions of "dream equipment" to allow room in my plans for further upgrades. Obviously the notebook computer is not in a good final position.

    Recent upgrades to the station: banquet table, Heil Pro Set 3 headphones, inexpensive 4" speaker, gifted Astatic SWR meter, Vibroplex Blue Racer bug from same SK as the FT-450D, vintage RadioShack HTX-252 2 meter mobile that needs cord replacement & a station timepiece. The pocket watch is a highly accurate 1907 size 18s 21 jewel Illinois Bunn Special railroad grade. The just added Yaesu MD-100 desk microphone is likely the best addition so far.

    Atkins Radio Shop sign was given to me recently by a client who found it in their attic. They knew we liked antiques & brought it to our office. Atkins is my wife's maiden name.
