What kind of shack equipment would you have?

Think 'dream station'.

Hm.

Network analyzer good through 20GHz.  A scope that was similar.

Milling machine.

Lathe.

SMD reflow oven.

Lots of parts and circuit board stock.  

Some sort of direct PC Board printer.

A couple of pretty flexible commercial HF rigs, probably one SDR and one good semi-portable one with a great receiver.  Let's say a Flex 5k and an Elecraft K3 with everything for now.

A bunch of good transverters for VHF/UHF/microwave.

A couple big "experiment" towers, like 100 foot self supporters but with a really easy way to swap antennas, like that guy who installed a crankup on top of a microwave type tower with a platform.

Probably one tower with something like a SteppIR Dream Beam on top for when I just need to work that new one without building anything, and a good low band vertical or array for the same down low.

Lots of land for a low band RX setup.

That'll keep me busy.

A new Dillon motorized progressive loader ...
Several new firearms in calibers I don't already have ...
Unlimited supply of primers, power and brass ...
A private shooting range ...


Oh, you mean a ham shack? Smiley

A tower and beam - otherwise I'm happy with what I have.

A smoking section in a restaurant makes as much sense as a peeing section in a swimming pool.

>if money was no object..


A country that would not allow HOA's to rule that you can't even have a tiny little 2m antenna on the back of the garage that people cant even see unless they are in YOUR backyard anyway.
