Through the years, I have been hearing problems from fellow hams over the air, and even in personal eyeball communications, about how they can organize and implement a good and effective Radio Frequency Interference RFI free grounding system in their ham 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.
These are not good photos, I am ready to throw the camera in the field; but here's the rig as moved to the living room, and the aftermath--the basement room where the rig was, or most of it. It is pretty much of a disaster area there! But I'll worry about that later. Got to test the stuff upstairs now.
A radio shack is a room or structure used for housing radio equipment. During radio 's early days, equipment was experimental and often home-built. The first radio transmitters used a loud spark gap to generate radio waves, and so were often housed in a separate outbuilding or shed.
Radio amateur activities. Ham shacks of dream. When we speak with amateur radios about their hobby, we are all curious to know what is their working environment and interested in visiting their ham shack.
