We’re getting ready to move the shack out of the office/shack into what used to be the guest bedroom. It will still be the guest bedroom for the rare occasion we actually have people stay over, but it will become mostly the shack.
It should be a much better room for playing radio, especially from a temperature standpoint. The office tends to get pretty warm in the summer and especially so when the computer/heater is running as well.
The room is also a lot closer to the antenna and I’ll be able to have a much shorter coax run out to the antenna than I do now. The room is all prepped for painting, and we’ve selected what we think is a nice shade of blue for the room. A day to paint with primer and let it dry, another day for the paint and we should be ready to move the shack into the room.
Right now the plan is to have a long table with the radios against the inside wall.
The antenna feed point is just outside the windows, so I’ll bring the coax through one of these windows and run it along the walls to the radio.
This should also make it easier to use the back yard for antenna projects since it will make the feed line runs shorter and easier.
