Well...I was asked to show some pics so here goes.

I am a bit embarrassed by the mess, but it's coming around..

I started scanning about a month ago as an extension of my photography biz. Figured I'd do some freelance photojournalism on the side...

Anyway....I went from (1) BCD396T a month ago, to 3 scanners and 2-way. Just finished running LMR400 to attic for Wilson Yagi 800 on a rotator to the 396 and have RG6 from my BCT15 to a ST2 Scantenna (also in the attic).

bcTool running on both Unidens.

Just got the RS 2046 and Kenwood TK-840 today (from a garage sale)...Not exactly sure how I am going to put them into the mix yet.

Next project: Discriminator Tap the BCT15 and program that TK-840.

Here are a few pics of one side of my "shack".

Thanks for looking... I have definitely caught the bug...My wife is so pleased. LOL

LOL..

I collect old vintage film cameras... Don't really shoot with them though.. hehe

I actually have another room in the house that I have taken over for a portrait and commercial photo studio. Needless to say, my wife is very understanding of my hobby needs..

Thank you very much.. I hope to keep improving it. There is a fine line between functional and nice looking I fear. hehe

Super high-end double secret type of stand..:D

It's a microphone stand actually with very heavy base. It works decently....Need a different clip though to attach a bit more securely.

That is a very nice shack there Andrew.

It shows you have a few interests besides radio.
Love those Tannoy monitors too- and that is another of my passions- HiFi gear.

Don't be too fussed about the mess (??)- I can't see any Pizza cartons or been cans in there!

Nice shack! I like the way the space is set-up for both work & scanning. Can you show us a couple pics of the antenna set-up in the attic. You must have some decent headroom up there for a scantenna.

P.S. Once the bug hits you......;-)

For some reason I really really like this one. Maybe because it is what I would like mine to look like.

Nice shack. Thanks for sharing.

Wow. Thanks everyone... I sincerely appreciate it!

As soon as I get my attic organized just a little better, I'll snap some pics... Actually, the Yagi doesn't have all that much room....Barely enough to rotate...but it works....

Thanks again.
