Basically Station 1 and Station 2 are the Main Operating Station. These is projected to be a Multi/One Runner Station. By side I project to do a Multiplier Operating Station in the other angle of the shack. Or as Runner & Multipliers Stations.

Final Project will be a Multi/2 with 4 operators and a Multiplier Station. This could also be suited into a M/1 or M/M.
