i use my vehicle as my primary operating location.
however, i am abit wary of keeping my equipment in my vehicle. last year, for field day, i mounted my equipment on a board that was inside a roll away carry on luggage bag. that was okay but i had a hard time seeing my radio, and it was always abit too low for my viewing angle.
after that experience, i decided on putting all my stuff into a radio box that is carried on a kayak cart. i can wheel my equipment to and from my vehicle easily; the tires are air filled. and it is not too heavy to lift into the rear cargo bay, which is my mobile radio shack.
the pic of my enclosure:http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w180/bpong/radioenclosure/latest0001.jpg
the enclosure contains the following equipment:
- LDG AT100Pro
- MFJ keyer/reader
- daiwa CN801HP swr meter
- 300W MFJ dummy load, mounted inside in the back
to switch between my tuner and dummy load, i simply swap cables on the female-female connector located on the leftside - no contacts or faulty switches to deal with.
the kayak cart is from wheeleez; their website is ...http://www.wheeleez.com/kayakcanoecart-tuff-tire.php
i had a spare one, so i used it to make the carrier portion of the enclosure. wheeleez did a nice touch by adding 1/4 holes in the frame so that it can be easily mounted on a flat surface.
