No doubt someone will comment and tell you to straighten out/organize the wires. That is just for esthetics and is a preference. I think what counts is what you are able to receive or transmit. Pretty doesn't help in those departments.
Yea I figure someone will say something but oh well. I have most of the wires cleaned up and those are the few that are left. Having 2 very young kids doesn't warrant a lot of free time to do stuff like that, lol.
As for the glow of the radios, yea it is cool to sit in the room late at night, turn the monitors off and just have the glow of the scanners, Ham radios and my stereo equip. Makes for a nice enviroment.
