Building an Emergency Ham Radio Go Box. Post #1365.

Every radio amateur should have a "go-box" or "go-kit" for portable and emergency operations.  In this video from BluegrassMedia, we see a well-designed, fairly lightweight, and highly portable emergency station that could be used at home or in the field.  You may already have most of the HF/VHF/UHF transceivers you need in your shack.  The metal or wooden case can be obtained from a variety of home improvement or electrical supply outlets.  Although this project was made indoors, it may be a good idea to wear protective eye gear and paint the "go-box" outside to avoid fumes.  Take stock of what you have in your shack and get ready to build an emergency ham radio station.  You never know when a natural or man-made disaster will occur.
