I am a newbie to this hobby. Currently I am working on trying to get my technician license. I have picked up a few receivers from fellow eHam members and Ebay. Here is a photo of my listening station. I would love to see what you guys have and how you have it setup. I am using a computer rack that I found on Craigslist for $200. It was huge. I cut it down to size. That is one mistake I regret ;-) Any regrets? Any purchases you would never do? Any you would in a heart beat and why?

I am a newbie to this hobby.

There is much more to "this hobby" than collecting gear.

Much much more.

If you want to gawk at gear an internet search will reward.

"This hobby" is whatever one chooses to make of it.

Some collect gear. Some build it from scratch. Some swap rigs in and out of the shack more frequently than you or I change toothbrushes, while others achieve DXCC Honor Roll on all bands using the same rig they originally started the pursuit with...many years ago.

Water seeks its own level.

Some of those pictures are very amusing. I am thinking of a combo
home tavern and ham shack.

Well sorry you got some snarky comments to start. Welcome to whichever part of the hobby u land in. That is a fine looking set up. Are they all wired to go? Np if they are not...... I wish I had all my collected gear capable of being on the air with the flick of a switch:) ...l seem to aquire stuff too fast to do such.
Good luck on your tech. If u are finding the studying easy consider studying some more and get your tech and general the same session. Getting those general privledges really opens many doors for u.
Good luck and never let the cranky old men slow u down.

Realistic DX-160 at other side of bed


Diamond D130J' for scanner; Wellbrook loop (fighting against a 30MPH wind) for the R8600 and DX-160; and barely visible is a 100' "lazy L"/9:1 trans for the R75 and SX-88

Not a ham, but an avid hobbyist in HF world. All things, short of transmit happen in this shack.
