Temporary QRT

This afternoon I disconnected all the equipment in my shack and removed it. I shall be off the air for a while.

The room I use for my shack is very small and I have run out of space to store all my electronic parts, tools and books. There is no space to permanently set up all my radios, so my K2 and FT-817 rarely get used in the shack although they could be. The only solution is to make some proper built-in cupboards and shelving. Before I do that it makes sense to rip out the worn-out carpet and replace it with something better. So I have to completely dismantle the shack and remove everything.

Hopefully it won't be too many days before I can get the radios and computer back up and running again. No doubt, whilst I am unable to take advantage of them, there will be some major band openings!

I am sure we will all try to hurry you back on the air by letting you know about all the massive openings that are about to happen.

This virtually makes certain tremendous band openings in the immediate future. Just like washing my automobile makes it rain. HI!

73 es speedy return to QRV.

Actually, a very good exercise when you have a lot of bits and pieces about. I would not replace the carpet with another carpet...static electricity.

Yes, I'm going to go for wood laminate flooring. Much easier to locate components that I have dropped!

Needs must I look around my shack with its 10+ year old matt magnolia walls... I think I will put my refurbishment off for a wee while yet.

Good luck with the project and I hope you are back on the air soon.
