    N9JIG Mobile Updated for Spring

    Well, it is spring here, 80's every day and sunny! Sorry Chicagoland, I don't miss winter at all! Last year after I bought my new Pilot I installed some of the radios (http://forums.radioreference.com/pictures-your-shack-mobile-setup/312816-n9jig-mobile.html) but now I have completed the...

    N9JIG Mobile

    After we moved to Arizona I bought a new 2015 Honda Pilot. This replaces the Odyssey that I used to have. I installed 4 NMO mounts on the roof and eventually have to figure out an HF solution. So far I have the 2 scanners (BCD996XT and a BCT15) and the Alinco DR-638 installed. I have an Icom...

    N9JIG New Home Shack

    We moved to Arizona a few weeks back and I finally have my shack working. There are still some important parts to be done, especially the antenna farm. I need some help to get my antennas installed in the attic so in the meantime I have a few mag-mount antennas on steel plates connected to the...

    N9JIG 2013 Update

    I have pared down my shack to the radios I actually use regularly. I found I hadn’t touched a bunch of radios in a long while and decided to cut back to the most used ones. I took out a half dozen scanners, mostly PRO2096’s or analog GRE’s. I tend to prefer the Uniden models, and rarely use the...

    N9JIG Van

    I redid my vehicle install recently. I bought an IC7000 and I was unhappy with the access to some of the scanners, looking at the displays required diverting my gaze too much from the road. I ordered a couple PortaClips (Great stuff BTW!) and went to work. I had had the radios tucked into...

    N9JIG Shack for Fall 2011

    Here is my latest redesign of the shack. Not a lot of new stuff, but some updates. The iMac is new, it is the new i7 27 inch model, replacing the older 24 inch. 16 GB of RAM, along with Windows 7 Pro via Parallels allows me to run most of the shack operations with just this and my other Windows...

    N9JIG rearranged for 2011

    While not a lot of exciting new stuff, I felt the need to take down and reload. The wife wanted to make some changes on her side of the office so we did both parts while I had some time off for the holidays. Here is a panoramic shot of my side: Here is the radio rack. I went with a tiered...

    2010 Update to the N9JIG Shack

    Cleaned up the shack over the last few days, got a new (used) computer, a couple additional scanners and moved some stuff around. I felt cramped with a lot of stuff, so I spread things out a bit. This means I roll the chair back and forth a little, but it is nice to clear off some desktop space...

    Latest N9JIG Radio Wall

    Here is my latest shack arrangement. I got a few new toys (early Christmas presents to myself) and set things up as a Radio Wall. I got smart last weekend when I rearranged things; I placed the radios where I wanted them and tried a couple different arrangements, then mounted the Stridsbergs...

    Update to N9JIG Mobile

    I have cleaned up my mobile install by deleting a rarely used 4th scanner and a VHF mobile. This makes for a much less cluttered install and makes it easier for me to view my APRS screen. Here is the radio stack. The rack is a Troy Command Console I found at a hamfest a while back. Since they...

    Another redo of N9JIG

    The wife bought me a new monitor for my Mac (Thanks Babe!), and took my old one for her new computer. I then decided to rearrange my side of the office, since I also wanted to integrate a couple new BC15's and another 996 I picked up in Dayton. Starting from the top and left to right: Top...
