For 3905 Century Club contacts I'm good in both bureaus. The shack is 12 x 20 feet and includes 2 operating positions and all equipment is easily moved and reconfigured due to the use of a french cleat system. One end of the room has a large TV and couch for my 'man cave' but this area can include even more operating positions for multi operator contesting. In September 2014 I had the chance to purchase retirement property with an eye toward a dedicated hamshack detached from the house. I found a great property with a 2000 square foot horse barn that can be converted as needed. This took me off the air for several months but when the dust cleared I had not only a decent shack but all the comforts to surround it, These 'ham shack extras' make this the Ham Resort. There is a dedicated bedroom, exercise and relaxing facilities including a bar and eating area. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070545 199070545 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort Ops position 1. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070538 199070538 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort Other end of the shack room. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070539 199070539 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort Shack entrance and anti-ham stereotype machine. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070540 199070540 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort Back side of the shack for adult beverage time or watching the World Cup. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070541 199070541 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort Another anti-ham stereotype device best for field day and IARU contest days. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070542 199070542 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort Best for late night soreness and after contest relaxing. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070543 199070543 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT's Ham shack Resort And lastly before heading to bed across the breezeway (under construction 2015) a chance to wash up with a heated shower under the stars. https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070544 199070544 Ron N4VZ & Kate K4VZT https://www.swampfoxcontestgroup.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199070546 199070546
