“We have left Grass Valley Ca and moved to Gold Beach Or. We are living in a rental house and we plan to build a new house. So, I need to setup a ham shack.
I this video I explain what I will be doing. In this video, I clean out the area, build a shelf, unbox the radios, and setup two computers.
Other videos to come, I’ll deal with the antennas, audio mixer and computer interfaces to the radio in the future.
I cut up the cardboard box that the shelves came in and to the size of the each shelf. This keeps the feet of the equipment from pass through the wire used for the shelves.
