How to Set up a Ham Radio Shack
Do you use a Radio Shack Ham radio? | californiansanetwork.com Forums
Your radio shack, however, is simply the place you keep your radio and ham equipment. The days of bulbous vacuum tubes, jumping meters, and two-handed control knobs are in the distant past. For some hams, the entire shack consists of a handheld radio or two. Other hams operate on the go in a vehicle. Cars make perfectly good shacks, but most hams have a spot somewhere at home that they claim for a ham radio.

When people think of ham radio, they usually think of high-frequency HF home radio stations. These are the stations that send messages directly to another radio station somewhere else in the world. Remember, to operate this type of radio, you will need a ham radio license. Choosing the right equipment is an important part of setting up your radio shack.
In the early days of radio, these rooms were called radio shacks, and this term has stuck, and is used today for a room where the ham radio equipment is contained. For some it may just consist of a radio receiver which can be easily placed in a convenient corner of a room. For other people with more equipment, more space will be needed, and there may also be a need for wall maps and other charts. The ham radio shack need not be a complete room, although for many people this is the ideal solution. There are many ways of setting aside some space for the radio equipment.
