This is my shack today


I have build a RADIOBAG, something that people call GO-BOX ...

The idea it is to have a "ready to go" setup, for outdoor activities, summerhouse operations, field day, activations and every sitauation you wanna have your radio with you !

Using the RADIOBAG, I use the following frequencies:

- Mhz 3.745   -   Mhz 3.755
- Mhz 7.145   -   Mhz 7.155
- Mhz 14.245 - Mhz 14.255
- Mhz 18.145 - Mhz 18.155
- Mhz 21.245 - Mhz 21.255
- Mhz 28.445 - Mhz 28.455

Here below a couple of photos of my RADIO BAG ! 

You can also see the complete explanation document in PDF ... and also a little YOUTUBE Video building step by step (accompained by good music !!)... may be this can help to inspirate you to start building one for you !! Lot of fun !
