So here is my current shack -- most of the equipment works, but not all is hooked up yet -- I am still working on antennas. The most clever part, I think, is the monitor swivel. In any shack I have ever set up, the most critical and precious space is what is directly in front and easily reachable for the operator. By making the computer monitor swing out, I maximize usable space and am still able to use the computer. With the monitor stowed, I can use the setup as a computer station. Also 2 meter FM is still very doable as there is not much tuning required. The shelf insert is also part of my main requirement to make it all reversible and invisible when I am not using it.
