• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

The (non travel) holiday weekend afforded me some time to clean up and take some new pix.

BC396XT, 780, 785, 895, 996, 996XT, 996P2, HP-1
Pro-2005, 2026
PSR800
Optocom
Icom 71A, Sony 2010
RTL-SDR

Antennas in the attic...
935 11dB Yagi (Rotor)
770, 845 10dB Yagi's (Rotor)
845 13dB Yagi
506 7dB Yagi (Rotor)
410 6dB Yagi
165 6dB Yagi (Rotor)
770, 850, 460 6dB Ground planes
VHF, UHF Discones
and an old multiband...

Cables are all LMR400f or RG6 (Belden 1694A) 60' or less into a good old-fashion patchbay for quick antenna switching as needed.

The desk has a few miles on it but I have not found another that I liked better for radio land.

I like it! You are right, that desk is ideal for radios! Excellent wire management as well.

I assume those are the rotator controllers under the monitor riser, great placement.

What are you using for a coax panel? I am thinking of setting one up and replacing a few coaxes this winter for my attic antennas.

It's an 80's era 75 ohm panel from an old TV studio. BNC on all the ins. Low loss. about 1dB @ 900Mhz passing thru. 1.5dB with a patch cable
