Default My radio setup

I finally finished a project that's been going on for over a year. A few days ago, I bought the desk in the pictures below for $15, and began to set up my equipment. I really like it because I finally have space to spread out all those random log sheets that always clutter up my bookshelf, etc. Anyway, here is the setup:


From top left: Motorola MCS2000 M3 800 MHz, Pyramid power supply on top of a Tekpower power supply, Uniden BC355N on top of a Uniden BCT2, Kenwood TS440s, RadioShack power supply, Motorola Astro Spectra above the power supply. Under the top ledge, starting left: Leixen VV-898 VHF-UHF radio, Kenwood TK-760HG.


From left: 2x Cobra CXT390 FRS/GMRS, Tytera MD-380 UHF, 2x Baofeng BF-888s UHF, Baofeng Bf-888s+ UHF, Uniden BC75XLT, Pofung UV82 VHF/UHF, Motorola HT1000 UHF, Motorola XTS3000 M3 800 MHz, Motorola XTS5000 M2 7/800 MHz, Motorola XTS5000 M1 VHF.

Thanks for looking, 73's!
Will, KN4IMX

$15 - can't beat that! Very neat setup. Now...how long will all of those radios stay in such a neat, orderly fashion?!? They look like they're lined up ready to report for duty! Nice setup - thanks for sharing with us!

Looks great! Love the set-up, love what's hanging on the wall! Maybe some here will get a chance to re-read it!

Yes it is. It was like that when I got it...but I don't know what the notch button does, so I'm not losing sleep over it

Nice set up. Great purchase on the desk - and it seems to work very well for the equipment you have!
