Ham Radio Equipment on. I built my ham radio bench out of wood from an old book case I built quite a few years ago. I bought some 2x4s for the base and some 1/2 inch plywood. Then I took the book case and made kind of a hutch on top of it. I put some adjustable shelves and some shelves that don't move. It is basically made so the hutch could be removed if I ever have to move it.
There are all kinds of industrial benches that you can buy. I would also suggest going around to garage sales and look for old desks or anything that may work. Now if you are the handy type you could get some wooden project plans and build your own Ham Radio Bench. It really comes down to your own preference and budget. Either way the object is to make it sturdy and have fun with it.
Here are some ideas below with benches and more.

I like to look around on ebay and amazon so I can check out all the cool stuff. It can be new or used Cool Ham Radio Equipment. Sometimes it can make it a little difficult to choose, but that's the fun of it. Plus it's getting colder outside, so putting up an antenna to test goes on hold. I like to take the time now to start planning on some kind of antenna project to have fun with. Hey maybe you might try putting a rotatable dipole antenna in your attic, that way you don't have to be outside freezing your hands and other items off. Believe me I have done that before and it was no fun. In fact I remember years ago putting up a half wave vertical antenna on a push up mast wall mounted to the side of my mothers house. It was cold, snowing and I was on the edge of the roof. Yes I was younger and stupid.
So check out the ads below for some cool ham radio equipment to put on your Christmas List For Santa This Year.
