My ham shack has been in transition for the last year, with an end goal of acheiving specific goals of:
I’ll try expanding on each of the goals, what worked, what didn’t, and what might be planned for further upgrades.
At the start of the project the then KB9GPN Shack consisted of:
Software being run was:
Operations were pretty much limited to 20m, 17m, some 30m, and 2m, mostly due to antenna limitations and RFI issues with the GAP reacting to copperwork gutters, steel members in the house framing I wasn’t aware of, and RFI into the household systems at more than QRP levels of power.
This made digital up to 30 watts the station’s limits.
It did work well enough to place second in one small national digital contest, earn a WAS award, PODXS awards and enough countries for a DXCC if I had only known more about getting confirming QSL’s
I’ll explore in further posts my ideas, choices and results in improving the shack.
