Ham Radio Console Assembly

Here are some pictures of building the ham radio equipment console rack in the 2×2 configuration. Sorry, some of them may be a little out of focus.

I started by bolting the two 45 degree sections together, and then bolting them to two straight sections on either side. This formed the base which all other sections where mounted upon.

Here’s a view of two sections of the rack bolted together. They are on the south wall of the office. In the following pictures, I’ll bolt on other sections like these. Each rack unit is bolted to the next which makes the entire rack very stable and secure and electrically cohesive. (Very important!)

Here is a view with one section bolted to the corner section. It starts the wing on the west wall of the office. When all the bottom sections are secure, I will bolt other sections without the rectangular box unit upside down to the tops of these. The result gives the console a turret effect and makes viewing the equipment much easier.
