    It’s very pretty. What I’d like to know is why would anyone build this?

    It could be a monument to the pack rat instinct!

      Hi Martin AA6E

      George W9EVT’s shack and “Ham Hotel” has a master plan. Don’t confuse the size and quantity of items with randomness.

      It is a PHENOMENAL place to relive one’s Ham Radio past, do A-B Testing of various rigs (I spent hours rotating between an Orion II, IC-7800 and FT-2000, and loved every minute of it) and contrast older generations of technology with the latest (George’s Flex-5000A should deliver this week!).

      A fantastic place to stay and “play radio!”

      I’m not wishing the responsibility of such a Mega-SHack/Museum on myself, as I am more easily contented with a radio or two, but it sure is fun to visit!

    still it looks a bit obessive but it is his place his rules

    I wouldn’t mind having that collection if I could hire someone to keep it dusted! :-)

    It is very impressive and a good looking museum. Would love to visit it one day.
