Improved Ham Shack layout

in STEMGeekslast year

New layout of my Ham Shack.

So after building the new power pole distribution board it was time to get the Ham Shack layout redone. As you can see I put in a short shelf to have the Kenwood TS-440 and associated power supply under the monitors. I then put the Yaesu FT-817 HF/VHF rig on the shelf as well as the antenna switch. I am currently using the switch backwards and using it to switch the two transceivers between the single antenna. the top shelf contains the Raspberry Pi (red/white) which is currently connected to the FT-817 for digital radio modes.

Always wanted to get into that but never had the time. And do I spy not one, but TWO (working) G5's?

Actually there are three G5 cases, one in the middle behind the monitors. I had gutted two of them in the past but could not discard those awesome cases. The third one is operational, but being it still has a power PC chip it is not very useful any more.

Nice setup! I am loving the triple monitor setup myself! !BEER

The two on the bottom are connect to a Linux workstation and the one up top is connected to the Raspberry Pi.

I'll have to show my son @puffdaddy5488 your setup. He is really getting into being a HAM. Looking at your posts since I have been away it looks like you have been real busy.

Sent you a tip for this post since it was after the 7 day limit.
