N1IK Station / by Brian Lambert

I've been doing some work on the N1IK station and office space. Here are some pictures.

First there's my office and station. I've placed the desks right next to one another. The tables are all from IKEA.

 Work on the left, fun on the right.

The station consists of an Icom 7800, an Alpha 87A (which is currently out for repairs), an ACOM 1500, and a Palstar HF-AUTO. I've recently added an Icom SP-20.
