Many people asked what kind of shelving I use here to house my equipment, the answer is: Ikea.
The u-shaped desk is from the office section. The frame under the table top is steel and won’t bend without a fight. The legs are strong and height-adjustable. The shelving on top comes from the “Besta” range. Light, easy to assemble and can be extended. I just buy the bare units, no doors, no drawers.
Over the years the set-up got a bit messy and I decided to have a tidy up and get some new shelving for the top. Here is what it used to look like and you get my point. The monitors on top are hard to view: Im wear varyfocal glasses these days and could only see the monitors twisting my head all the way back – terrible for digital work or log-keeping.
I started by removing the equipment and the old shelves, only my Kenwood TL-922A amplifier was left behind. Too heavy to shift and the relay got sticky and needed cleaning or replacement anyway.
As it turned out the relay could just be cleaned and is now good for another 5 years or so, no worries there.
Here are the 2 new units waiting for the equipment to be fitted. I have chosen single units with glide pads under the feet. Now they can be easily turned around, even if heavy radios are fitted. Great for wiring it all up. Many transceivers have been dropped when people tried to pull them off a shelf in order to plug in some leads into the back!
In goes the equipment. A little bit tight and I might have to add an additional fan unit to keep the IC-781 cool. The PSU can get very hot. According to Chris at Icom UK nothing to worry about – maybe I shouldn’t worry then…
The double monitor stand is in position to take the 2 23 inch monitors
Everything works perfectly without having to re-do anything. I haven’t yet set up my speaker yet, I do that next weekend. If you are after a good quality speaker for your hamradio station, stay away from those that mach your transceivers. They are all overpriced and sound terrible. Get yourself a good quality centre speaker from a suround-system, they work great. I use a KEF Coda 80 myself and it sounds excellent! £30 was all I paid on Ebay. A rack mixer and a small audio amp feed the audio of all my rigs to it. I might add a BHI DSP filter very soon, a great British product.
Still available, will ship to the US! (20th of June, 2014)
a dear friend of mine, Dave, G0MJK has the above items for sale, both linear and antenna tuner are rare these days and they work very well.
The items are located in Northampton (UK) and you can contact Dave via email:
He wants a very reasonable £600 for the linear and £300 for the automatic tuner. Before you ask: that’s for the tuner only, no interface lead provided (you don’t need one anyway)..
