    Looks nice, job well done my friend. Hope to talk to you soon. Heard a couple of people from down your way here the past couple days, couldn't get back, too much traffic. Anyway, setup looks very nice, how's the radio working out for you?

    Wile I wait for antenna matcher to come pulled the system apart for a few important bits - bigger air holes , perspex in top shelf to let out light and some of the switches replaced with better quality one's, I have to set up two power sources to one radio so some new switches for that to... so have to recover main panel too... Hear is the messy inside ! PLEASE KEEP IN MIND, ITS JUST A HOME JOB !

    Crude drawing but a thought for two different power sources , to shut one down totally before using the other.. Will the diodes be needed to stop lights from doing there own thing ? Light from switch will be wired to switch next to it ? Is that making any since ? Don't want power making lights half on when should be off or powering up meter in power supply.. ? What problems can you see ?
