I thought it might
be fun to have us Flex users show a picture of their FlexRadio in their shack.

Here is my 6600M in my shack. It's in the rack on the left.

I tried for quite some time with different camera settings to get a photo of my station that I was happy with.  A visiting friend took this one with his iPhone  and I like it a lot.

Thanks I'm pleased with the way it came out.  I watched your Amp video.  I need to replace the LEDs in the meters on in my AL-80B.  One has started to go dim.  I may hunt up some LED strips.  Where did you get the stick on sound deadening material?

My most recent setup.  The shelving is sitting on an adjustable height desk which makes it easy to adjust the keyboard height etc.


I still need to work on cleaning up the nest of wires laying on the floor.

He has that look on his face like "I wonder where my RFI problem is coming from" ;)

Rich - nice clean setup - love it.  What size monitor and what resolution do you like to run?

Thank you Dave,

It's a Dell 34" curved monitor (u3415W).  I'm using an NUC I7 and the resolution is set at 3440 x 1440.  I bought it on line during a black Friday sale last year.  Next week will be a good week to look for pc's and monitors.

I had a pair of 29" wide screen monitors stacked horizontally.  While I could use a bit more monitor real estate, I can get just about all of the apps I'm interested in open on the 34" monitor.

The important part, to me anyways, is looking slightly down at the monitor, vs looking straight ahead or up.  It makes things much more comfortable during long Flex sessions like a contest.  My neck appreciates it, hi. If I look straight ahead I'm looking at just slightly below the top of the monitor.

Finally cleaned the shack to be somewhat presentable. Behind me are three additional tables for the Collins S-line, Drake C-line, and my vintage Collins station and R390A. And to my left is a laboratory of spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, and signal generators. Retired electronics engineer/packrat ..

Gorgeous.  I spent much of 1968 and parts of 1969 with my headphones plugged into an R-390.  12 on 12 off.  I love those radios.

My wife asked me why so many displays. Why are you doing this she asks?
W7NGA: 'Because I can ...'
seems reasonable to me!
