The 50 cal ammo can

I love 50 cal ammo cans. Here is another great use for them.

Reverend Bow's 11 Meter Ministry

Thought this project fell by the wayside?

No So…

The Version 1.0 is the Anytone Smart CB and a QYT KT-8900 VHF/UHF, External speaker, USB Power Ports x2, Volt Meter, Anderson Power Pole power inputs, and a 40mm, 5 CFM Fan to move some air in the box

The CNC faceplate didn’t work out… The cuts are not square, nor are the holes where I asked for them… and the radio cutouts are either too large, or too small…
So I went old school: table saw, Jig saw, and drill…

Using a basic RS Scanner/2m/70cm antenna in my garage attic at 12′ AGL, full quieting into a repeater about 120 miles to the north west

That will work…
