Default My Station is complete!

What more could you want? This shack even has a view!
This was to be the comuter desk but then again right behind this chair is a desk that folds down that should be just right for the laptop.
Now if I can just get the house sold we can go full time!
Then all we have to worry about is the cost of fuel.

Tarnation, my portable station takes up more room than that!

Well I had to downsize from a much larger FT-990 for the MH.
Cutting weight and size everywhere we can for full timing.
The FT-897 is just a bit larger than the IC-706. I had two of them in the past and decided to stay with Yaesu.

Well... I like my station.. It has a special seat so that when you feel the urge to go somewhere, sudden like, during a net (Nearly always 10 seconds before your call is called for your turn) you still won't miss your turn, cause... Well.. You are where you need to go already.

I don't have that problem.
I don't do nets.
Just never got into them.
