• 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:

Nowhere near finished but a work in progress. There are two rack section to the far right that are almost finished. I'm still re-working them. Eventually all of the empty spaces will be filled with radios and accessories in racks. DE ve5jl check out my QRZ page or my website ve5jl.com 73's

I have seen similar setups with Hon rack mount furniture. Sadly I am never able to win these auctions.

Great setup there, and all black is nice too. Like the angled desktop.

Thank you for sharing.

Surplus racks are a dime a dozen at your local electronic scrap and surplus yard. Any company that does commercial IT work probably tosses out a hundred racks a year from old installations that have been ripped out and modernized.

Given the money, my shack would look like a cross between Mission Control, the FCC's reference technical laboratory, and the most modern dispatch center Motorola ever installed for a major customer.
