• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Nice setup. Very neatly done. What kind of project box is that? It looks like there is still plenty of room for more goodies.

Nice Set Up!

I'm looking to do something similar to this actually. This gives me some ideas. Looks like a good work in progress!

That must have been fun to build- congrats. Consider/evaluate if you need to add a low voltage fan to keep the components cool & happy...no air is going to move around inside that thing otherwise.

Yes it is a Kenwood TM-201. I picked up the Radio and TNC at a Flea Market here in the San Jose Area.
The Box I picked up at the DeAnza Electronics Swap meet for $40.00

I do have a few more to install such as LED lighting for night operations and going to install a Icom IC-R2500.

The entire box is great because I can go out and about (Don't have a shack at home due to antenna restrictions) and open it up on the go...


Thanks For the comments.
