Is that a RS 800 on the 436HP? Seems to be the standard for the 436. That power strip on the wall is nice so you don't have to dig around on the floor when you need to plug/unplug.

Yes that is the RS 800 antenna on the 436. It made a world of difference over the stock antenna. The power strip is so useful I got it at Harbor Freight for like $20 I think and it allows me to plug in everything I need to at my desk.

Very nicely done!

I too like the idea of the power strip on the wall and at that level, it's easy to plug and unplug your radios.

Thanks for sharing with us.

New Desk and Radio setup

I finally got a bigger computer desk because I out grew my last desk. I was able to mount my Uniden BCD536hp and Yaesu FT-7800 to the desk above my primary monitor. Sorry for it being messy still I'm in the process of putting everything back in it new spots

Nice. Do you find the second monitor being up on top works well and isn't difficult to use? I've thought about similar type setups before but always worried I'd get tired of looking up and down. But I guess that depends on what you use it for...maybe you don't change much on it and just reference it now and then?

Just curious. I like to see how people setup their shacks/offices and also how they use their equipment.

The second monitor on top works well because it frees up space on the desk but it does take some getting use to. I would have to say that if you used it a lot your neck might get sore but I don't use mine all that ofter mainly for my weather radar program i use when i'm active on my skywarn net

That makes sense. I thought it looked like it was displaying a map, possibly radar but wasn't sure.
