I got one of those 4 bay scanner racks from Scanner Master. Just came in today. I like the new tidy look. I reorganized my small listening post too. These racks are the way to go.

Looks great Bob!

A word of caution, don't over tighten the mounting knobs on the SDS200, especially if it's mounted in the top slot. If you do it will put a small pulled out bulged on the side of the scanner case! This doesn't happen on the BCT15X, BCD996 series, only the SDS200.

What I ended up doing is putting 2 rubber washers between the scanner case and inside of the mount so the pressure is very minimal and still hold radio in place. I see the sds200 is about 1/8" smaller in width than the other radios so backing up the knobs with washers worked out.

With one of the super micro pc's and stridsberg multiplexers make nice rigs in the field controlled by

I can barely keep up with all the chatter sometimes. I think 4 scanners is my limit. I have found out that I really cant use ONE scanner to monitor everything I listen to. The micro PC fits in the mount ok? They must be pretty small. Like a thin client?
