    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:

Looks absolutely great! I'm in the process of doing the same thing and will definitely use this as a model. I haven't decided on Gator Case or a more traditional wooden rack but I like the look and decreased depth of the Gator Case products.

Gator Case (10U Tote-able), Radio and speaker panels from Novexcomm, power supply panel from Samlex, blank panel generic/available anywhere..

If you ever would have the need to go portable or off-the-grid, something like this would complement the rack nicely! They're available at better prices and similar configurations as well as different manufactures manufactures, or it looks like have the skills to build your own!

I was definitely looking into one of those. I haven't decided if I want to go with something internal like the setup shown in the Youtube
"The West Mountain Radio Way" video or the GoalZero.
