Re: My aerial @ shack


I have the portapack for ukfm and the other one is mid band only. Want a handheld 80 to save a bit of space in my bag. Dont use FM day to day but enjoy hilltoping now and then, good distances from up there!

Re: My aerial @ shack


very nice, will be doing something similar shortly, havent decided whether to good for wood or breezeblocks (better insulator for noise and heat) Mrs didnt look too chuffed though, "what have you done to my garden"?

 emoticon

Just messing, nice job

Re: My aerial @ shack


The wood is thick and is good at keeping the heat in, saying that though it still gets cold in there in the evening, might have used breeze blocks - if I could build with them (has trouble with lego!)
My mrs got this shack for me and helped me build it, think she wants me out the house?
Just need a few hours spare to get aerials sorted and then some time to spend in there, it`ll come.

Re: My aerial @ shack


Its great having a shack outside, away from everyone and the TV etc. emoticon

I'm going to spend a bit of time trying to sound proof mine a bit better, as I can get a bit excited sometimes when calling rare DXCC's emoticon For instance, I get too loud emoticon

Looks fantastic All, you can proper decorate the inside as well with all kins of personal stuff emoticon
