I took your tip and bought several of these boxes by mail. There are different models. One has four nice BNC connectors. The other type has some four pin devices with a dot near one of the pins near the input connector that I can’t identify. They are marked “107”. I thought they might be rf amps? Any help?
Last Saturday went to the Orlando, Fl Hamfest looking for a uBitx case. Despite all the tailgaters/vendors none seem to have suitable cases. (Did snag an almost new Experimental Methods in RF Design book for $10, so not a total waste of time.)
My buddy and I decided to head over to Skycraft Parts & Surplus in the afternoon. While he made the rounds for parts for his next project, I headed for the surplus cases. There on the top shelf were 5 aluminum cases. Pulled one down and said WOW, it is perfect for the BitX. They were made for transportation IP based video systems. The size is 8.2 X 8 X 3.5 inches and has separate panels for top, bottom, front and rear. As you can see from the pictures attached, the LCD hole is already cut as well as holes for a fan, BNC, and switch. Even included a circuit board with LCD, fan, BNC, etc. Price $9.95.
If you are in the central Florida area (they will mail order) and are in need of an outstanding aluminum case for your uBitx or Bitx40/20 may want to check it out. Suspect they won't be on the shelf too long.
