The "shack" is the building in which a radio amateur keeps his or her
radio set-up. The EARS shack is in CSEE's Hardware Lab (room
1NW.2.10) and is basically a lockable cupboard in which the radio and
associated bits and pieces are stored. The photographs below show the
shack locked and opened up.
As well as the club radio, an Icom IC-746, and its power supply, the shack stores a laptop running Linux which has a range of useful software for amateur radio installed on it. Each club member has a separate login on this machine (logins are callsigns), but if you don't login within a few seconds, the systems automatically logs you into a communal EARS account.
