  1. What box are you using? Is this the Rigid 22″? Thanks.

      The box is a Flambeau Dry Box. I picked it up at Tractor Supply for right around $14 I believe. As of now TSC is the only place I’ve found the black version, which Flambeau labels as “tactical”, for a reasonable price. Here’s a link to them on Amazon but they are crazy expensive there: http://amzn.to/1M6B6bh. Alternatively you can find these same cases in green, blue, and rarely in safety orange at Wal-Mart, Target, and other similar stores during hunting season.

    That is a very nice “Go-Box” you have assembled. I recently picked up two TH-9800’s (one for inside, one for the car) and while Googling on how to add APRS to it I landed on your site.

Down the road, I’d like to get an actual hardware TNC or something like a SignaLink though. Thanks!

I originally wanted to build something that would contain much more equipment including a second VHF/UHF system, 1-2 scanners, and an HF rig with meters and tuner. I quickly decided that something this size would either never leave my bench or it would never be used due to it’s size and weight. This is a post I made a while back showing the initial enclosure system I planned to use which tailored for ARES/RACES and Field Day type operations before I considered daily use and portability.
