Designing a Radio Ham Shack

I can’t remember how many times I’ve moved my shack around. And when I do, it’s always wrong, it doesn’t look quite right and nothing fits where it should.

Further, just when / if I do manage to get it right, I need to get to a particular piece of equipment that’s stuffed away perfectly on a shelf. I seem to spent more time dismantling the darned thing to get the piece out to either take to a field day or have it fixed.

More recently, I’ve discovered that Visio (MS Office) is a great drawing tool and allows you to measure out each piece of equipment and get a plan worked up – at least something you can work with.

Oh, to have a magic cable bunny that I could rely on to shuffle them all around and tidy after me!
