My Wi-Fi Tool Kit

I’ve always been curious what tools other wireless engineers use and how they have them setup.  So I figure I’ll start by sharing my setup   =)

Software wise I’ve been blessed by my employer to have access to the assortment I do. Hardware wise its a mixture of employer and me taking things into my own hands.
