Shack Updates

I was granted some room to put a shack together. I have already assembled all of the radios throughout the house into one good operating position. I also now have a computer dedicated to only my radio stuff. The computer still needs some work, but its progress.

I have also erected a Solarcon A-99 for 10 meters. So far, it appears that the antenna is working well, and in the new location, the radio is working well. I'm looking forward to working 10 meters more.
