I've been feed provider for a number of years moved from upstate SC to the coast full time in 2010 have changed things several times. I have kids and cats who love to chase one another. There is no regard for whats in it's path.

Put Feed radios in this case under lock and key...with success.

Great set-up! I really like rack-mounted equipment, especially the smaller slant rack. Looks like a dispatch console.

All the scanners are from one antenna outside with LMR-400 cable and split through a 8 Port MCA208M VHF/UHF Receiver Multicoupler made by STRIDSBERG ENGINEERING.
I've been trying a few different antennas, I have a 800mhz for the BCD922 running all my trunk channels and a 400mhz antenna for my BCT15x running all my conventional. Funny thing is that my Trunked channels seem to work better on the antenna rated for 400mhz. I just set up a cone antenna for the conventional and moved the trunked to the 400mhz... I know how to get the meters correct with antennas lenghts and all that, but the rules dont seem to apply in practical use.. My question, what kind of antenna are you using and des it seem to work across all bands?

Wow, that looks great! I think I have seen something like this before, just cannot seem to remember where...


My wife had suggested once that I get one of those free-standing rack cabinets after she saw one in the server room at my office before I retired. I might still end up with one eventually.
