New home for K3...

Dave Cole
 

Hello,

A short update on the new home for my K3. I have terminated all 80 plus BNC connectors, and the patch panel is ready to mount in the hutch...

See the last 4 photos for the current state of the desk hutch. Located at:

https://www.nk7z.net/rf-patch-panel/

That address shows progress from delivery to now... It now has 130 feet of RG-8X in the Panduit mounted on the rear of the hutch, and 60 plus BNC connections on the patch panel, and just looks cool as hell! :)

It is actually coming along fairly nicely... I will bundle all the cables tomorrow after toning them out to make sure I made no errors in plugging them in.
