Default My new arrangement

I was running out of room on the tabletop, so I ordered an aux. shelf. This allowed me to move the tabletops from the table to the shelf so I could replace the paymaster shelf and drawers. Much nicer now and not so cramped.

The additional shelf makes a huge difference. Well done!

Going vertical! Nice setup. And a nice array of HF gear. We don't see enough of that here.

Thanks, vertical is all I was allowed. As to the HF gear, it's been 52 years in the making. It all started with a Star Roamer assembled in 1967.

Thanks all!

I feel you. I have about as many years in the hobby too. Sadly, my SWL HF gear is all gone now. My first SWL receiver was a Lafayette HA-226 tube set. My last was an Icom R-75. I see you have one of those in your shack.

And damnit, SDRplay announced the RSPduo just this morning. At least it will not take up that much additional space.

Although I much prefer to listen with the physical radios, there is a lot to be said for the new technology. I think they complement each other very well.

Yes, I saw that. Very tempting and an inexpensive way to get back into HF. My wire antenna is still strung in my attic! I like the look of the SDRuno software. I may be more interested in the RSP1A though. Not sure I need a dual receiver.

Don't forget about the HF+. Seems to handle the local QRM a tad bit better than the SDRplay, at least in my opinion. It also may be an option for you. Supported by SDR# and SDR Console beta3.

Big fan on the Palstars. Once I get the first one, I was hooked. Makes the R-1000 sound almost perfect.
