Ergonomics and the Radio Room.

I re-organized my radio room after designing a new simple console with the ergonomics in mind. The purpose was to achieve a more user friendly operating environment. Some minor changes are still pending additional gear. The PSU will be placed under the desk plate, the speakers on vertical stands and a dual monitor bracket will be installed freeing up space on the top shelf. Special cable organizers are installed on the rear of the console with all wires and cables (coax, electrical and audio) stacked with ferrite cores to eliminate any RF signals in the shack. The console also includes a “star grounding” system connection points on the rear side as well.

Jetstream switching power supply review.


Recently I came across W5KUB´s review on switching power supplies on Amateur Radio Roundtable. In this case he reviewed the 30 AMP Jetstream JTPS32MAB 12V switching power supply. These units are sold for a fair price compared to many others on the market. I decided on this one and it´s on order since the review implied the unit is very quite while running. I will post my personal review later down the road.
