My personal preference is for the radios to be stacked, one above the other.
I typically use the top radio as the running radio
(and call it "left") and the bottom radio, whose tuning knob is easier to
reach, as the S&P radio.
Life is less confusing in the 42nd hour of the contest if the two radios are
identical; one doesn't need to think so much about
where to find a particular control.

Subject: [YCCC] SO2R Setup - Left,Right or Up,Down
Hello fellow contesters.
I've seen lots of setups using two rigs in a horizontal orientation (i.e.
rig 1 on the left and rig 2 on the right), but I've seen very few vertical
setups (rig 1 on the bottom, rig 2 on the top). What are folks thoughts on
this? Are there reasons for each setup? I've found that the side by side
seems tiring. I've got my monitor in the middle, and one rig on each side.
Lots of head/eye movement to see things. Going to try a vertical setup with
both rigs on one side and would be interested in your thoughts/comments.
