Interesting, I've not seen half of those receivers before... only issue I see is the empty space (more receivers required)

Looks great. And count me as one of the jealous ones of the plectron as well. Some day I'll get one tracked down and working.

I found a Plectron at an Antique Shop, paid 20 bucks for it... When I got home and plugged it in it worked. Still running Strong!

If you use the MT1k for monitoring find a convertacom or battery eliminator for it. The possibility exists for a fire to start if it is left on in that charger for long periods.

Wink My Minor start to a Monitoring Shack.!

I thought i would add this Pict i just took of my two little Giants.. the Shelf was a pain in the Buttock's to put up but the bracket for my 996 attached to it Well i will try this for a While see how Scanner does with it)

But when i had it at another location > my Cabinet < And not to far away from were it is Now it actually picked up the Wichita / Sedgwich Co. System Way better! But it's in progress and i will try other things to make it work..

Hope you Like the Picture: Ra
