My Shack 1962

A somewhat idealized view of my ham radio "shack" when I was 13. The device second from left is entirely fictiional: I added it to fill space after messing up the proportions of the other equipment. On the wall are "QSL" cards: postcards that hams exchange to comfirm radio contact. Note the loving detail given to the Eames fiberglas chair.
