The fun/hard part is the metal-bashing - I can easily pay money and get the
unit made, but that's not in-keeping with the penny-
pinching aspect of our wonderful hobby, is it ?! I've uploaded my 3D mock-up,
it's 36k so can 7+ it if anybody wants to see it
and doesn't have internet access.
The top will hopefully be the opening, and will have a hinge just behind the
S0239 - Plus a lock the other end. I may have a
standard DC jack for re-charging, although the fact that the battery would be
so accessable sort of means I should just have a
spare and swap over whilst the other is being charged. I wonder, perhaps I
should "decorate" the top/lid with a solar panel ?
A 2nd compartment will be able to house the VX7R should I wish to lock it away,
or take a PMR446 with me for recreational
use (disclaimer: i don't intend running 5w with a 5dB aerial on 446MHz via the

As you know, Andy, DA and ER on 2m/70cm are only 5 miles away, and BZ up in
Braintree is workable, too. I can hear RE
and your local box, EK quite nicely - all on the rubber duck - So I think the
/P location bodes well for a potential 6m/2m SSB site.

Thanks - Got it. Nice little unit. I'm not 100% sure about lugging the 817
out on the bike, but I'll certainly use it when operating a
fixed position. HF aerials are not my forte, so I'm going to sort out my /M
toys first ;)
