What was your very first "shack" setup?

    The shack has not changed much over seven years because what's there to change!

    Apt. "shack" with access to balcony. FT-90, Antron 99, around 1990. With 100 watts and the Antron worked the world. Bought my first computer from Sears, 40mg hard drive, floppy drives! "Internet" was in its infancy! Nightly sked with Antartica! Those were the "good ol'days!"

    My first "shack" set up was my living room floor in my last apartment. I had a feedline that I would connect/disconnect that would go out through my patio sliding door. I had a small table and a camping chair set up for as a "desk" to operate my radio on HF (with my MP1 antenna on my patio). It wasn't much, but I was able to make quite a few contacts.
