You might want to put in some support brace's under the right side shelf so you do not get any sag in it from the weight of those scanners.

Nice setup otherwise! Thanks for sharing.

Wow, that is a of Uniden's. Do you happen to own any stock in the company? LOL.

Seriously though, that is a very nice set-up.

Just recently got them hooked up so I haven't had much time to see how it all works. I had quite a bit of RCAG stuff this morning when the band was up. It's kind of quite right now but should be hopping when they start doing more training again.

Question

How are they programed, each one on a specific frequency, are they scanning, etc ?

Nice mancow, the room lights must dim when you turn on your power supply. Clean simple set up. I could only imagine your multi coupler or antenna farm on the roof. What is your favorite antenna for 30-50 MHz ?

The multicoupler is just an Electroline cable tv drop amp with a 4 port splitter on each of the 4 outputs. As for 3-50, my favorite is the home made ground plane suspended from a tree out back. It's made of 4 8ft aluminum angle pieces for ground plane elements and a regular stainless center whip. A wire crimp eyelet crimped to the whip make for a hoop to attached the string it's suspended from. It works better than anything else I've used.

The antenna feeding the 780s is a TACO commercial brand 225-400 mil antenna with a preamp and filter right below it.

I divided up the 225-390 range into chunks and programmed each with one of those chunks of spectrum. It allows a search of the entire range in just a few seconds.
