Get into HF, then the antenna farm in the yard should take her mind off your radios indoors....for a while.

You need a few more. NOT that I have a lot, I don't, only the two in my truck and one handheld CB, but I think you need a few more, nonetheless.

You could always remove the shoes from the closet and make a batman style cave to hide the radios
