Pretty much an all Kenwood shack. The 820S is my Dad's novice rig (KA4GSL) sk. I had been messing around with different shelf configurations and began to think that some surplus server racks may be the ticket. Got a look at AG7AG's setup and following a conversation with him decided to go for if. Glad I did. All of the shelves are bolted front and rear and even the one with the 922 doesn't complain.
Mine in the making
Awesome, I love your shack. Where did you get the racks?
Just a simple one these days.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all
They are all from Navepoint. The one on the left is a 6 U unit and the other one is a 15 U unit. They are wall mount racks and are easily capable of handling the weight of the rigs. I bolted the rear of the shelves using drill point sheet metal screws. Worked great. To form a top for the racks I used 8U vented blank spacers, also secured down with drill point screws. They don't have feet so I used 1.5 inch Everbuilt hard plastic feet from Lowes/Home Depot.
Always wanted a basement shack. Looks cool. Need some big old boat anchors to keep it warm.
