    Default Show us your Shack

    Come on, I am too embarrassed to show my as still decorating (it's taken nearly a year). But lets see your shack images, and hopefully I can add mine in few months time.

    Edit:- Adding this to remind people that we can handle quite large images upto 6.5 Mb (would love higher but host has 7Mb upload limit).

    Can't be worse than mine which will be shoe-horned into a corner of my existing study which is already overflowing with bits of PCs and overdue paperwork....

    Shack Update from M0TZO:-

    OK, due to a bereavement, I am not going to operate in CQ WPX in March from France. This sad time has made me look at my plans and I have brought forward the finishing of my Shack.

    Carpet Tiles ordered. Doors removed for re-painting. Getting a sander early next week. Soon be done (hopefully).

    Also in 2 weeks, I have asked 2 local friends to help me put up my 6-BTV.

    So, if all go wells, should have photos to be proud of before month is out. (Taking bets now )

    Sorry to hear about the bereavement. Would love to hear some reports on the 6BTV when you get it up - I'm waiting for the right time to approach the XYL about putting one up.

    It's sad, it's very spidery and it is definitely work in progress :oops:
    One day it'll look inviting and have an air of professionalism and maybe an expresso machine. At least I have record of how it all started, a decent desk seems to be top of shopping list.
    Note; Mic plugged in for effect, not use as yet.

    Thanks. The 'spider factor' is quite important to a true arachnophobe like myself but they only appear at night and I keep telling myself that I've never been a fan of the nightime bands, more the 15m on a sunny afternoon person :lol:

    It's great to see various shack layouts, always gives me an idea or two.
    cheers,
    Andy

    Ah, a console set-up, very nice indeed. I used to lust over the console units that used to be advertised in the old U.S. callbooks ...usually opposite a page advertising Henry amps
    Shame you haven't got it anymore... maybe in the future?

    cheers,

    Well, here is my new shack - temporary 'fit' as it were, as I am moving the shack into a different room soon.



    Not a very good photo, but you get the gist (I hope )
