I don't know.... For me, at 6'3", a corner setup makes good sense.  When I 
take my hands off the keyboard, my elbows more or less naturally drop in 
front of the left and right radios.  I'm still learning to be comfortable 
tuning the second radio with my left hand, but it's coming.  I don't really 
feel that the presence of the keyboard in the center is a big issue.  See
