Shout out to Amateur Radio folks - @Team_Amateur_Radio and those interested.
Here’s an update on the future Hamshack…
Where is it?
102 power room - next to our friends in Blacksmithing.
Doors will be getting rfid locks, windows, and vents.
Primary area is along the wall to the right.
Floor area is ~3’ 10" wide x ~15 ’ long. Very rough measurements.
Currently pwr is 120 VAC @ 20A - 2x duplex outlets.
Photo on the right shows 3’ mark at the screwdriver and ~3’ 10" is on the right side of the code stripe. Need to keep to the right of stripe to keep the Code meisters happy.
There is an area to the immediate left inside the doors that can be used for storage. Donated antennas are currently stacked there. Item to the right is the left edge of the fire safe.
Antenna box. Going on recall here…6x low loss coax lines to box on roof. Type N connectors on both ends. Control lines and AC pwr (?).
Anyone know where the keys / tools for the latches are?
Currently there are no connected antennas on the roof. Restrictions - both city code and landlord are being looked into.
When floor space is limited, you go up. With that in mind, I’ll recommend putting up pallet racks. The blue pallet rack ends are 3’ wide - keeps everything to the right of the code stripe. Put first shelf at ~7’… Put benches / tables underneath along with lighting. Add 2nd shelf for stability along with multiple points attached to wall. I don’t have lengths of the crossmembers that work with the blue ends. If they’re to long, we can cut and re-weld. First dibs / claim to the blue pallet rack ends and cross members was ok’d by the Infra Boss.
AR SIG - you need to start considering what /who your leadership will be, take inventory, what antennas are needed for current gear, projects, etc.
All for now.
