    Minimalism for me.

    Not only must it be, it does so seemingly automatically.

    The latest iteration of the radio bench, only about a week into it so far, and don't have much of it cabled up yet. Took all the test gear and put on a facing bench with about four feet between

    Here's the NY7N Superstation in all its glory...



    And by "glory," I mean "hilarity." Not pictured - identical twin Omni-C sitting off to the side on a shelf - my dad's old one. It's actually in every way in better shape than mine, except it's only putting out 50w, so I need to get that fixed. Then I'll relegate the current one to parts radio status.

    It is pretty fun operating a station where everything in it is roughly as old as me. I feel the rig understands me when I make random pop culture references. :eek:

    I assume you have some source of heat in there....after all, it's 50 degrees in Wisconsin this last weekend of July. Looks like you have provided for all the necessities of life in there....the clear winner by far! :)

    Here it is as it was about 8 months ago:


    The TS480 is now on mobile duty and its slot has been replaced with an Elecraft K3/100 (which reminds me, I have to update my QRZ bio page). The TM721a pictured has been given to my mother to get her back on the air after almost 15 years away. That has been replaced with a TM-D710a. Added a few days ago is a Yaesu FT-101E with matching remote VFO. That will earn a spot on the main desk once I finish checking it out and making sure there are no weak links. The 440 has been moved to the other side from where it is pictured and is still a great rig that I use regularly.

    My travel "shack" (it was decoding gibberish at the time of the pic):

    That HQ-170 is one good-looking radio. I hope you can get it operational.

    I've only had it for about a week but I have removed all the broken glass and I am planning on replacing the broken tubes and re-installing a few other "loose" components; otherwise it looks to be in pretty good shape. The seller should have removed the tubes and packed them separately; sometimes Fedex can be rough, especially on something that weighs this much. Glad the HA-10 was a local pick-up! Haven't had this much fun in a long time.

    Great thread. Lot's of very nice-looking shacks.
