The new shack desk

I thought I’d catch it before it all goes wrong with too much stuff on it! The only enhancement it needs is a full size rig (or two)

    Looks like an Arduino driving an LCD on a breadboard.

    More info required please

  • George W4GFA:

    Nice desktop Alex! Please remember to take another pix when you get the two full-size rigs in place. Looks like the only way you can go is up.
    And…what is that strange looking device on the right side? 73

    Nice new shack, now fill it 🙂

  • Don’t worry it’ll be full of bits and pieces in no time at all. I thought I’d take the snap to remind myself of what was underneath all that useful ‘stuff’ in a couple of weeks time.

    The minimal look isn’t right for ham radio.

    For Paul and Mike, the collection of wires on the right is my shack clock. Its a MSF60Khz receiver, Arduino Uno and LCD unit still on its breadboard. Quite a nice little project that I have lined up for the club once I’ve established a few construction evenings.

    Good evening Alex, a good ham shack is one that have room to grow and grow….it’s what birthday’s and Christmas are for!! Looks great!

  • I’ve got the room, now all I need is a lottery win or rich relative to sudden pop up and offer to fill it for me 😉

    I was very keen on a Hermes but budget isn’t there at the moment. I’ll have to do some more overtime
