NEW ENGLAND WEATHER NET RADIO SHACKS
K1GHC’s shack in Rindge NH
K1WCC’s shack update in East Falmouth MA
Kevin, KD1J, suggested that I put up a page on our website for members to post photos of their radio shack, and perhaps a picture of themselves. I thought it was a good idea and expanded the thought: photos are great but how about short videos. I tried posting a video but can’t say I like it (I need lesson from one of my grandchildren). You can email me JPEG photos of your shack and yourself. All of your smart phones will let you or your grandchildren take pictures and email them to me. Maybe your grandchildren have a video camera and you can send a link to a YouTube video.

The three computers display Ham Radio Deluxe, my Davis Vantage Pro II weather station, and my weather website (http://www.capecodwx.com). The four radios are all Icoms(7000, 9100, 746Pro, T90A. There’ are two power supplies but I use the Astron 35 amp almost exclusively. I have two amplifiers (Tokyo HP 550FX and Acom 1500 An LDG tuner is linked to the Tokyo HP and a Palstar A2KD to the Acom. The DBX controls my audio, recommended by Kevin, KD1J. The barograph was a present from Bill Claflin. Antennas include 75M dipole tuned to 3.905, a T6 log periodic for 10 thru 20M mounted on a 50′ Rohn tower, a 43′ vertical for 10 thru 40M, and a 2M Yagi for VHF, furniture is from Ikea. Here’s a picture of the other side of the shack showing the model ship and airplane that I built.

To quote Kevin, “Most Hams wouldn’t bother with all this, but my microphone is aBehringer B1 studio condenser mic, feeding a Mackie mixer, into an Alesis ‘NanoCompressor’, which feeds the Line Input of my Yaesu FTdx-3000D rig. I remember years ago as a young ham reading in an old ARRL Handbook about one’s “On the Air Voice” and that phrase always stuck in my mind.”
Are we surprised that he has such an outstanding signal?
Bill French says that Henry is the best Net Control he’s ever encountered. I agree! He’s on his way to Dayton and tells me that the shack will look a little different when he gets back.
