This page is devoted to ROARS members who wish to add photographs of their Amateur Radio Shacks, and also any relevant information which would aid other members in the hobby. This could include advice on gaining planning permission for aerials, and also aerial design for the small garden, to which transceiver to buy.
Juergen Wagner has kindly sent in a photograph of his “Interim” Shack. The final solution shall be that all the holes are closed, and from that time he will stay on the air every day and no tinkering – only when absolutely necessary.
The transceiver and power supply are in situ only to get the spacing right and allow me to plot where aerial leads etc can be routed. There is much outside work but that is subject to weather and hopefully when I can to a small amount of tree pruning done and plan the transmitting aerial. It is not a large room and there are four computers as I keep two old ones running with XP and Windows 2000 because of certain bits of hardware that won’t work without an ISA slot.
Happily my old ICOM PC-1000 and it’s software is now working fine with Windows 10 with a USB/Serial Port converter for the newer computers (serial ports are rare these days and non-existent on the laptops,) so I might be able to remove one of them.
Hence my ‘chaos’ statement on the posting. I know it looks a mess right now …. Well …. It is a mess right now, but hopefully order will emerge in time.
I’ve no particular plan on the completion date but I think I’ve pretty much got all the bits I need. Playing it by earphone so to speak. ☺
