After constant moaning about needing to tidy up my shack and almost recently losing the room that I have it in I have finally got some sense of 'order' to it!

(Big thanks to those who have made mention of shacks just recently - gave me the kick up the ass required to post details up.)


Left side :-

My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity Img_0110


Right side :-

My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity Img_0111


I know, some will still cringe without site of an 'executive' desk accompanied by an Apple computer and flashy waterfall rig but this little lot cost me (as the title states) almost nothing. Smile


Everything was either donated and repaired/restored by myself along with some homebrew equipment or generously gifted to me. Along with various bits of wood scrounged, donated or otherwise salvaged for 'furniture' (simple hammer, saw, screws affair!) it sit's quite nicely in the space I am so lucky to have.

Still could do with a few finishing touches (without making a flipping mess of it all!) and you really don't want to see the opposite side full of guitars, amps, leads, books and my wood turnings!

I do have at least a kettle with sundries on the far right side (out of shot) to make a brew and get to enjoy most of the RF spectrum from 1.8MHz to 446MHz.

Can't be bad and keeps this old 'crip' happy. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d


All the best,
Victor

Hi Lionel,

Hope you are keeping well. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d

Yeah, sort of coming together and I think in many instances by luck rather than design! Wink

A lot of what's in here is pretty much someone else's "junk" I've accumulated over time but luckily I've been able to repurpose it. All good fun!

Hello Victor,

The shack looks great.👍👍👍 It is even cooler that you have done it on a budget and repaired some of the equipment too. Your tech skills are top class.😎😎😎

73s John.

Hi John,

Really appreciate that mate. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d 

Been great cobbling all of this together and have taken pride that I've either fixed, repaired or built most of it myself. Hasn't been an instant job but learned a lot over the last couple of years or so.


All the very best to you,

Victor

Mine is a pigsty and your putting me to shame now Victor.
I need a warmer dry day as i would have to put stuff outside while sorted mine out.
Small black fridge to keep your milk in for a brew ???.

Lionel, 

That fridge was discarded by one of my daughters and destined for landfill before I saved it. (Rather she gave it to me knowing I'd be able to do something with it.) Power supply didn't work so I repaired it and the first time I plugged it in my HF reception was totally wiped out!! RF noisy as heck!  Shocked

With a redesigned and built power supply it no longer obliterates radio reception and chills nicely. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d 

You couldn't fit a tall tinny in there, about big enough for a can of coke! But my missus fills up a little milk jug for me in the mornings to keep me going with brews for the day. (Little kettle and tea/sugar/coffee pots on that side too. Wink )

Oh, and a 90's Kenwood stereo/tuner next to it (again, landfill saved) so I can listen to another type of radio....Radio Caroline.


Also an Alexa device hooked into it.....so I can call my better half when I run out of milk. Very Happy

Hi Alan mate,

Well I'm not making promises but now I have something sorted a bit more permanently I'll do my very best to keep it tidy! Wink

No build progress but just a final Ta-Dah. Did enjoy seeing your shack build. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d 

It looks tidy from this shot but a flipping wreck the opposite side of the room!! 

We do have lots of little bits of junk (ahem useful items) with our hobbies but I think I'll handle that with the little cupboard and drawers I've saved. That and all the ice cream tubs I keep salvaging to stop stuff rattling in drawers....roll on summer for more ice cream tubs!

Can't beat a bit of Radio Caroline.....music more in tune for some of us old farts! Very Happy

(Modern 'nasal' crooning and autotune horridness is just awful!)

Mind you, most musicians nowadays 'recycle' too......just other peoples music! Wink

Hi Tony,

Ta very much, shack's doing the job right now. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d

No accounting for taste with our preference to radio listening. Wink
Hee! Hee! Very Happy We should all enjoy what we enjoy and how we enjoy it. Mind you I can hear Caroline on the old 648k/c's MW and when I shout it up on the 'Alexa' it doesn't scream at me about BBC Licensing(!)

Hope you are keeping well.

Here Alan, (sshhh), me too! Very Happy

Probably all those great old stations responsible for me building radios as a kid too. Used to love Radio Luxembourg as well.

Hi Victor,
I will post a pic of my 'Starter for 10' shack in the next week or two, just need to get away from FT8 etc. and tidy it a bit.
I must admit I do sometimes listen to Caroline these days, but probably wouldn't if the BIG L was still going! Razz Laughing

I'm good thanks, I trust you are too?

Hi Lionel,

Tony Blackburn still on there is he lol.

Edit
Strange i just had an ft8 contact LX1RFJ in Luxembourg.
That was another radio station i listened to years ago Radio Luxembourg.
This is right off topic but i think Victor started the stray lol.

Are you sure you're actually using that shack?  Mine only looked that neat the day it was built! Very Happy

Nice work though.

Tony,

Would be great to see your set up and in fact anyone's should they so wish to post up a picture. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d 

All as well as can be expected here mate, often that's the best we can ask for. Smile


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alan,

You know I'm a terrible admin when it comes down to hard and fast 'rules'.....anything radio related is fair game in my book. Wink


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hiya Jeff,

You're right, it's still fairly new and I did tidy up a bit for the shot. (Even unplugged the mics to make it a bit more photogenic! Wink )

Great to have a bit of 'organised' space to retreat to for some radio fun. Actually sorted my electronics stuff out a bit too so I can enjoy some homebrew construction without dropping blobs of solder over the radio gear!

Cheers mate, much appreciated and I hope you are keeping well.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Big thanks to all for your replies to my junk-built piece of heaven. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d 


I've shown you mine, now show us yours. Wink Very Happy Very Happy

Nice shack Victor.
It certainly appeals to my OCD nature 👍🏼😁
It doesn't matter what equipment you have as long as it makes you happy. Especially the sense of achievement you must feel repairing the radios and building the layout up 👍🏼

I still haven't got my homebase gainmaster up 🙄 too cold, too tired after nights and still haven't sorted a pole ☹
But I will 👍🏼
The caravan base will probably be first.
I'll get some pics up as soon as it's done 😉

At least my rigs are back in the car 🙂

Hi Nige,

Much appreciated mate. My updated 'Shack' - Almost no cost thanks to others generosity and a bit of 'recycling' ingenuity 1f44d

I totally agree on the radio front, it doesn't matter what you have but rather what you do with it!
So long as that's mostly enjoying yourself then who's to argue. Smile

Glad you're at least running a mobile setup as there's nothing worse than having a radio interest and no radio to scratch the 'itch'. I know you work hard long shifts mate but wishing you well for a bit of time to enjoy further getting your setup sorted. Look forward to some pics.
