It is handy to operate ham radio at the kitchen table when having a transceiver remote head. Here for the Yaesu FT-857D. Then you also have room for other items that just happened to lay there. Here a compass/thermometer, a whistling Bullfinch, souvenir horses from Fukushima in Japan and an angel from Öland in Sweden lit up by a small candle. According to the artist who has created the angel you can talk to her. Yes I can affirm you that it is possible :-)
A handy little new item för 10 bucks made by the Swedish company Silva.
