Spotlight Ham Radio is a HOOT!
Ham Radio is a  HOOT! I use carts for my RIGS. Easy to move around to access the back radios and amps, for repairs ect... The drawers on the cart are great, and reversing the trays to make shelves works very well. TS940S, MarkV FT1000mp, and some older Kenwoods.

Strays Add a Stray!
On the upside, if DX stations gave us the signal reports we actually deserved, everybody would be running legal limit and you'd never be able to sell a QRP rig, ever!
