Big Dongle Array - redo

Today I finally nailed down 99% of the layout on my RTL big dongle array box...Just a few tweaks to add like several small fans (because the dongles get quite warm when running 'rtl_power') and a 12v supply for those.  And I need to work out one more splitter setup for dongles #2 and #3.

Aside from that this is mostly locked down as is now...I may add more LNA's for specific frequencies soon.  I have them I just haven't added them in yet.

Here are two pix of what this looks like now. (click them to see larger views)
