What was your very first "shack" setup?

    I found this old picture. My "first" "SHACK" was in 1953. I took over the job of Chief Op at KL7FAG, Naknek AFB in Alaska. Running a BC779 receiver and BC610 transmitter. It must have been in summer because I shed my military :fatigues: for civilian clothes.

    But you have to get on the air and use it!

    The antenna is 10x more important than the equipment.

    Hi Steve. Stay tuned, I am almost there. It is indeed the antenna I am working on right now (full size 40m inverted vee). Thank you for the kick in the rear, I probably need it!

    BTW I was just reading about you in "The Art & Skill of Radio-Telegraphy".

    Edited to add: Sorry Dave, did not mean to hijack your thread, this is rather off-topic.

    I lived in Huntington Long Island 100 yards from Long Island Sound. Salt water and a good station let me work the world.
