Setting up your first Ham Shack may seem a little scary at first, but it does not have to be. I would start out with the basics when deciding on a Ham Shack for all your Ham Radio Equipment . There are some Ham Radio Operators that may have a separate building or maybe a room out in their garage. I would just make sure it's heated for the cold weather and cool in the hot time of the year. Other considerations for locating your Ham Shack is a fairly quite place in your house. In my house that isn't an easy task. Right now it is next to the family room and at times it can be somewhat noisy. I have moved it to quite a few different locations in the house and now I am right back where I started.

|20 Meter Moxon Antenna|
If you are looking for a simple Antenna to use with your Ham Radio in your Ham Shack you may want to build a simple Moxon Antenna for your desired Ham Band that you transmit on. There are many good websites and videos on youtube for building Moxon Antennas. There are Moxon Antenna Calculators on the internet that you can use to design a Moxon Antenna. The Moxon Antenna Project website is one of the best websites for Moxon Antennas and here is a link to it http://www.moxonantennaproject.com/links.htm . Here is a link to one of my other blogs on my 17 meter moxon antenna project http://thehamshackshop.blogspot.com/2015/02/homebrew-and-new-moxon-antennas.html .
