Question Main Box and conduit

This is my 200A Main Box, what do you think?

-200A Main Box
-Wire is UF-B 12/2 with ground.
-17 - 20A breakers and one 30A.

Inside the 2 inches metal conduit there are:
9 - UF-B12/2 with ground in one side and
8 - UF-B12/2 with ground and 1 - 8/2 with ground in the other.
(UF-Bs were a gift, so all the house is wired with it)

(Head, meter, tensor, ground rod and cable between meter and box not yet in place)
(of course Im not intending to put the meter and cable between meter and box)

My concerns are in the conduit with, let say, 9 - UF-B12/2 with ground each side. Some one in
this forum told me that this is not the common way to do it, but has been made. I wanted to send
the picture anyway so youll have a better idea of what Im talking about.

Edge of Box is 21 1/2 from the window (just like the old one), 28" from ground and 21 from
above (soft is the name?).

Am I ready to call the power company?...
... or Should I call 911 or fire fighters instead :-))) ?

Thanks.

You need to upload any images to a personal website and then either:

1) Put a link to it in your post so folks can click and go over to the website and look, or

2) See the recent thread on Code Violation Pictures, scroll down past the first few and see the post that explains how to put the code in your post so that the reader can view the image inside your post.

Either way you must first get the image onto a website.

Best wishes!
