Spotlight W2ARP closet Shack.
W2ARP  closet Shack. My Shack is in a closet off of our "work out" room on the second floor of our QTH. I use two computers in the shack, a laptop computer is used for Logging and the desk top computer is used for look-ups, Contest logging, DX clusters, Packet and VoIP. All the computers are networked via a small LAN to a DSL MODEM. My HF rig is a 100 watt ICOM IC-725, with two HF antennas, a 3-element tri-band beam and an inverted V. For 2 meters I have an all mode Kenwood with a 10-element beam. On 6 meters I have an Alinco. I also run the SCARA packet station / BBS with a TNC and an old Motorola radio on 2 meters.

 
Strays Add a Stray!
Q: Why do manufacturers keep making our gear smaller and smaller? A: The smaller the gear, the more we can cram into the shack. And, the more gear we can cram into the shack, the more gear we'll buy.
