Updated Home Shack (yet again)
Ok, so I've made some major updates to my home shack/office, so here goes!
Under the shelf from left to right:
Kenwood TK-8180 UHF (for scanning UHF, including Delaware County Fire)
Motorola MCS-2000 Model I 800 MHz (for scanning the 800 MHz interop channels and Philly's analog fireground channels)
Kenwood TK-7180 VHF (for scanning VHF, including Montgomery County Fire rebroadcasts, marine, railroad, etc)
Radio Shack Pro-197 digital scanner (for scanning Philly Police, Montgomery County's trunked system, and sometimes Burlington County's trunked system)
Motorola CDM-750 VHF (for scanning Bucks County Fire rebroadcasts)
Top of shelf from left to right:
Wouxun dual band for misc use
Motorola Minitor 3 VHF (for monitoring Bucks Fire Dispatch and Montgomery Fire Dispatch when at work)
GRE PSR-800 (for scanning Philly Fire)
Motorola HT-750 (for scanning VHF channels while out on foot)
Motorola HT-1250 UHF (for scanning UHF channels while out on foot)
The computer monitor/TV allows me to watch TV or work on my server
To the right of the desk, under the printer is the server (a Dell Optiplex). It runs 2 scanner feeds and my security camera recording software. I also use it for radio programming.
The unit on top of the server is a DJ audio mixer used to combine all audio from the Kenwood radios, Motorola CDM-750 and PSR-800 scanner (for one of my feeds)
The Uniden 996T under the printer cart is for the other scanner feed I run (for a news service)
On the shelf above the desk (not pictured) is an FM transmitter, which broadcasts the audio from my mixer so I can monitor my radios from a Walkman or clock radio anywhere in and around my house
My antenna stand on the roof has not changed. I have thrown a couple of magnetic mount antennas onto a piece of sheet metal outside the window for misc use. I plan on relocating them onto the rooftop at some point, and plan on raising the masts on the antenna stand so the antennas are about 10 feet (or so) higher then they are currently.
One step from "Banned For The Greater Good" lol
