Well was a snowy day in PA so worked on arranging my work station, and might be a work in progress. Hope I do the attachment right, if not I will retry. Mike

WOW Looks Great!! Looks like a comfortable fun place to be. What is the piece of equipment on the top shelf to the right of the Pyramid power supply?

That is a old Palomar 300A amp I just bought for my Washington base station. Works good for a old amp.

I am assuming it is a tube amp so it will keep your shack warm!!

Yes it is a tube amp which is sought out by the old die-hard radio guys. I didn't seek it out it came my way unexpected at a price I thought was right. I haven't had a lot of time to put it thru it's paces because seems like skip is rolling when I am busy doing something or going some where. I'll be in my car and I'll here the skip and think if only I was home I could check equipment out. When I am home I haven't got the radio personality or lingo down pat yet. And nobody close to me bothers with CB anymore so it is hard to check things out and tune your equipment. DX is a different world! PS Let me know when your set up and maybe we can connect on SSB like channel 34 or 40 where you wouldn't get talked over by everybody. 38 lsb is a madhouse when skips rolling and alot of big amps control the waves and I suppose some operators have their rigs tuned just right.

Looks good JJD did you change things around lately. Seems to look a little different than the last time I seen it. But I sure see your old Palomar Lite up. LOL 38 lsb was a mad house a little ago. Happy DXing

I know what you mean about desktop real estate, my desk was actually a tiny one and I made a new drop on top to expand the surface. Then I made the top self and a little corner self to expand the loading of gadgets. Cobble cobble cobble!
