My New GoBox!!

Here is my new Tackle box GoBox.  It includes an Icom 706MKIIG and the Icom AT-180 Tuner, Zastone MP-300, Signalink.  It is powered by two 10Ah Lithium Batteries that are very light.

This was a fun project to build.  I wanted ONE box that had all the options for all modes of communications that I use.  It has 4 radio's in it.  Kenwood TS480SAT, Icom IC-5100, Yaesu FTM400, and a Yaesu 8900. The reason for these radio's was because of the removable control heads.  They have magnets that I placed on the back and that is how they mount to the front panel of the GoBox.  It is powered on AC with a HP 65amp Blade power supply.  On Battery power I have a MFJ-4416B to help keep the power constant. There are 4 LED lights included for night time use.  They are made by Littlite.  I have a Watt meter to keep track of my power use.  With everything on, it only pulls 4 amps.  It also has a clock so I can keep up with the current UTC time. If you need to charge your tablet or phone there is a PowerWerx Dual USB connector.  You will also notice 4 speakers that have on/off switches as well as a headphone plug for each.  I made it so you could have the headphone and speaker on at the same time.  The Solar panels are a pair or 60watt panels that put out 6amps.  The case is made by SKB and is the SKB Case CCR6W1SKB.  I found this case cool because it has Wheels and has rack rails on both sides.  
This case took me about two months to design and build. It has been a pleasure to work with and I hope to get many QSO's with it.

Here is a picture of my GoBoxes at the W5FC TechNet on the Hill 5th anniversary event.

 

 

Thanks for looking and hope this inspires others to get building.
