Re: experience with Sunil VU3SUA's enclosures #ubitx

In my experience, he's more likely to respond on Facebook. He posts there in the uBitx groups now and then. I had ordered a case in late March and shortly thereafter he announced a couple new colors in a FB posting. I sent him a message via FB about changing to one of the newer colors and he was very willing to switch. He had inventory in the color I wanted (blue with white panels) and sent it out right away. I had several FB messages with him. You might give that a try if you're on FB.

OTOH, a friend of mine ordered a case shortly after I did and has still not received it and has had no response to several email inquiries. He is planning to file a complaint with Paypal.

As for the case itself, it's well done. You might want to remove some of the paint from various places to be sure you get good contact all around. I think some of the connectors could be higher quality and the off/on switch failed after only a few uses. I also had to adjust the position of the board so that the display would line up with opening...I elongated the four holes about 2mm to the right (looking at it from the front). Overall, it's probably worth the money, esp. if you don't want to do a lot of drilling & filing & acquisition of connectors, etc.

From some postings on FB, it looks like he's working on a version to handle the touch screen displays.
