Well 2019 is here and its time to clean and re organize our shacks its also a good time to take a nice picture of your shack or station showing your FlexRadio in action.
I will start with a picture of my Maestro in use in the listening room at my recording studio in Nashville.
I take the Maestro to work with me sometimes so I can play radio during downtime. I just connect to the WI-FI and I’m on the air!
Teamviewer to control the Hamshack computer (Device Power, antenna selection, logging). SmartSDR to access the 6600. and VNC Viewer to control the Amplifier (RF-Kit B26 2K+). It just works!
73 de W4EEY
Have both a Flex 6600m and an Icom 7300
Two Mac Minis hidden behind large monitor running mac digital s/w with gigabit switch and a Gigabit router network setup
6x2 antenna matrix switch, Rotor control and KPA500 with LDG AT1000ProII on left side of station
of course my Coffee Mug as the most essential item
Here is my setup. I made the shelves, and used some desk mount monitor arms so the screens swing out of the way to get to all the wiring.
I'm using a Mac Pro to run everything (W10 and MacOS using Parallels), with 6700, AG, and PGXL plus a DEMI LDPA and 70cm Transverter for full duplex satellite ops. The RigRunners do a good job of switching everything on or off just by using the remote power switch on the 6700. G-5500 az/el rotator control with LVB Tracker. All of Don's DogPark mac software or SSDR in W10, as needed, and of course gigabit ethernet.
Thanks to the others for sharing their pics, seeing such tidy stations gives me motivation to maybe clean mine up a bit more some day... ;-) Despite my best attempts I still have quite a bit of cable chaos.
