“I’ve spent a lot of time over the years looking at the designs of ham radio go boxes amateur
radio operators have created. They invariably include some ideas and design concepts that I hadn’t considered or that are excellent concepts for their use in real world and emergency situations.
The size of a go box varies based on the application when and where it will be used. Everyone building kits will probably find that eventually they will build several based on its intended application. They are small kit to grab and go that is used in daily activities and a more robust kit that can serve as control point for emergencies, club activities and other similar applications.
After looking at a myriad of designs, the single best go box design I’ve found was created by Robert, KC6TYD. He has found several solutions to issues that I’ve encountered involving the case and ease of access to the back of the components.”
This project took a while but it’s finally done. My GoBox consist of a Gator Case which incorporates a 19″ rack system which will hold my Yaesu FT-857 and FT-8800 along with some other associated equipment. Check it out.
