Richard Morris: I think this design is brilliant! Excellent job and video!
ThePauperPrepper: I have seen ALLOT of Go Box Videos. You have come up with some great new ideas (at least new to me) Love the steel plate in the lid. Cant believe that no one that I have seen thought of that one. Also didnt know about the "U" model Rig Runner. Great idea. And love the Light Panel. A very nice clean job that is ready to go to work. Some guys do get a bit gung ho w/ Power Eating , yet unnecessary accs. You have not. Add that HF Rig & U R Done! Job Well Done! 73 de KB3VEW
ScotticusZ: Hey Steve! Go box looks great -- you gave me some ideas once I had mine done. I'm using an 8U gator box, probably a little heavier than yours but I think it's got some tricks you'll like. I posted the intro to my build as a video response -- check it out, see what you think.
I REALLY like your idea for an integrated mag mount ground plane so I did that myself.
Take care, my man. Well done.
jokewallpaper: YouTube won't let me put links in the comment section. If you scroll up to the video description there is a link to kf9za-kremer-com-gobox that is a web page with a complete list of materials with links. I got the box at Sweetwater Audio. A link is on the page.
pockets264: Where did you get the box?
jokewallpaper: The steel cutout is 18" by 11".
vaughnburrows: What is the dimensions for the 22 guage steel cut out? Thanks
jokewallpaper: I was wrong with my estitmate of 50 miles. According to Google maps the repeater is 36.4 miles from my house. That's driving directions, not as the crow flies. The video doesn't show that the strength was only a 1 on the scale @ 5W, plus I didn't get a signal report from anyone. The repeater is the MARC repeater in Johnson County Indiana at 940 ft. You Tube won't let me link to the site, but you can Google MARC Indiana and click on the repleater link.
Laban Johnson: 50 miles on 5 watts?
Daniel Freeman: I am in Fremont, what vendor access do you use for solar?
Daniel Freeman: What about making the whole box metal, then you would already have a faraday box? Do you think that would work? I thought your Go Box was awesome looking. I'm thinking ahead.
afirdaus068: Neat and simple design. Good job!
radiosification: Why do you think CW is one of the best modes for emergencies? I personally think it would be far to slow compared to voice.
SolarSteveUSA: Get with me So Cal if you have any solar questions...I'm in Nor Cal and I have vendor access.
jokewallpaper: I'm in Indiana and got the sheet metal at the hardware store called Menards. It cost $7. I don't have an HF radio yet. Did pass my 13wpm test back when I was first licensed in the mid 90's but did not stick with it, so a key would not be a good addition for me. Will check out your go box.
n4ktz: Where did you get the 22 gauge steel for the inside of your lid. I have built a go box also(under this user name if you would like to see it)so maybe you can get some ideas to. I am adding a battery system for emergency and both a straight key and iambic key for morse code. Dont know if you do any CW but for emergency it is one of the best modes!
irishbrew101: What a great presentation of your go box. Very clearly shown and described and even a well done material list WITH vendors. Excellent video....... Thanks
ohgary1: very nice.. I have a similar case with an icom 706, but like some of your mountings better than mine. Thanks for the video.
