well this one is a little old as the titan 425 gold is back now sooo!lol
And some of us are just getting started..........
I've noticed a lot of the shacks have their computer monitors up high above most of the business end of things.
I'm wondering if that is a better way? I have mine down on the desk with the radios and such, but if that is better
I'll do it different.
Part of my shack where 5 of my Signal/Ones are located. On the shelf are a CX11A, CX7B (NJ Build), and a CX7A. Setting on the Johnson Desk Kilowatt is another CX11A with CX11S speaker and a MS1030C
I would think the location is just a compromise between the best ergonomic position (so you aren't craning your neck upward to see a screen) and the convenience of easily getting to the equipment's controls. As with most things, your preference....
I have a few monitors that I use for different stuff. My main laptop display for what I'm working on the most (usually games). A monitor off to the right at eye level I use to display SOTAWatch or reveresebeacon (stuff I glance at, but don't interact with much). I have a larger TV size monitor that I mounted up higher. I rarely use it, but I think I need it to look cool. That's the same reason I keep my oscilloscope close by, so I look "sciencey".
I only operate QRP Portable, so my shack is the world.
