Re: The Home Office

I'm reluctant to turn one of the spare bedrooms into an office in case the kids decide to move back home.

Re: The Home Office

I also just use my laptop on my knees. Don't like the thought of being on the computer in another room from the lounge / away from the TV. It works for me  Smiley

Re: The Home Office

when I lived in my flat my spare bedroom was my office - filing cabinet, laptop computer etc was all in there.  Now in house, so spare bedroom contains printer, bookcase and filing cabinet and small table for said computer.  But the laptop now lives on kitchen table - as with door open I can use it and watch TV in lounge!  So my home office has spread over 2 floors!

Re: The Home Office

Have got a "manual" scanner for my VHF listening, which I keep in the car.... the 2 radios I have in my "office" are fairly large..... you can have a look for them YAESU FRG 7700 with frt7700 and frv7700. also YAESU FR-50B
I miss my Eddystone 680x, and my Eddystone 750, both about same size, but most of all I miss my Racal RA17L which is about as big as all four of them put together, but outshines the lot..... the comparison is like a Rolls Royce (RA17) and Bentley (eddystones) with Skoda fabia 1.9 diesel (FRG 7700) and Skoda Felicia (FR-50B)
I will tidy up the "office" and take a pic to show you the layout.... (sometime)...
