Second project: Microphone Boom

I had this idea last week and it turned out to be quite quick and easy. I went Bunnings and bought an angle poise desk lamp and then went to Dick Smith and bought a 600ohm vocal microphone. First step was to remove the lamp components and fit a microphone clip. Secondly, drill a suitable hole in the shelf to seat the stand and thats it. $50 in components and 10 minutes adapting and fitting and i have a quality desk microphone and boom that takes up almost no space and can be extended to suit the operator.

The first of 2 Projects this week

I haven't had a lot of free time this week, but still time enough to get 2 projects done. The first was a simple shelf to give me more access to an increasingly cluttered station.

Cross Member For Mast (a Sunday arvo project)

It was a glorious Sunday afternoon so i decided it was time to add a cross member to one of my masts in order free up another. Nothing technical here, just some mast brackets and a length of light pipe cut to a suitable length. Now i have the weather station and the Discone perched on the spar and a spare mast for my next project.
