I think there are a number of people who have moved the display away from the main board to give them some flexibility in terms of display placement. Evidently, some shielding is needed, but I think I recall someone simply wrapping the cable in foil mitigated the problem. I'd like to hear from anyone who has moved the display and what their experience is.

Subject: Re: [BITX20] 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?
