Re: Apache Case on Sale

I love the idea of a "portable field radio" with all the controls on the top in a watertight case like this.  I'm thinking of modeling it after a bitX40 build I saw here, and this case looks like the perfect size!

Is there any reason I couldn't do that with the uBitx?  It looks like the LCD plugs directly into the board, but would it give me noise issues if I used a short length of ribbon cable to move the LCD to face upwards?
