I'd like to tap the assembled wisdom of the group on this topic.  Since I
don't know how many others are interested, I suggest direct replies, and
I'll summarize for the reflector (just like the old days).

Contest stations are more complex than most, and innovations like SO2R make
the problem just that much tougher.   How do you manage the mess of
interconnecting wires and cables in your shack?  Do you try to cut each one
to length to fit your current setup (power cords excepted, maybe)?  If not,
what do you do with the additional length.  Do you use labeling, or
bundling by function to try to keep things under control?  Cable trays or
other mechanical devices? Is there anything that works particularly well
for you that you'd be willing to share?
