Looks fairly neat and organized, I too have an old HTX202 sitting on my shelf along with Yaesu VX10, FT50R, FT60R & Alinco DJG5 (my first radio). I like how you refer to it as a shack and not a command post. I have worked command posts and a radio op for SAR and other groups. My shack is a shack and listening post.

Thanks, it's actually very messy [papers and such everywhere]. I too have worked command posts in the past and since I no longer command anything [not even my cat] It's my shack. I do need to get a digital scanner some time as everyone is going that route.

Looks nice.

I see you are addicted...to "Stacking". I'm the same way. I convinced that my cause of death on the death certificate will read "The victim was found under a highly organized pile of various electronic equipment, computer monitors,rubber bands and other office supplies. A large bowl of pistachio shells were found nearby. The cordless phone was found off-hook with a dead battery."

I also see you have the scissors handy for cut & paste on the forums. Nice!

From experience, keep stacking until the stack starts to quiver when a car goes by.....

I'm truthfully amazed that even in the year 2012, 15 years after digital cameras entered the consumer market, it is still possible to produce pictures of that quality.

C'mon - how many hours of Photoshop did you spend to achieve that retro look?

Nice Setup!

Nice touch with the thread name;) Those Radio Shack scanners in the picture, remind me of how much fun I use to have with my Pro 2006 scanner back in the 90's. Thanks for posting...
