Cool. 

My stuff is just packed in a super large (insulated) ammo can.  No organization, per se.

Im still embarrassed to show anyone that side yet. LOL    ;D    I still need to get the Powerpole distribution block and the Super PWRgate PG40S. Right now I just have the three radios wired straight to the power supply.

Wow, I'm impressed. I'm in the planning stages of completely re-doing my go box, due to my first attempt resulting in something that was not as functional as hoped and waaayyy to heavy.

Can I ask what type of case you used? Do the drawer on the bottom and the power strip on top come with it, or are they add-ons? Lastly, what is the LED display top-center? Is that a line monitor?

Very nice!

I never could solve the weight issue with everything all set up already,
now I use a pelican case with everything just tossed in,
and it is still to much weight for me to carry very far,
but I guess why they make wheels

Heavy is right.  Didnt know it was going to be so heavy.  This is the box I got. Wish I had gotten the 10U.

I got the 2U 16" L drawer from Amazon. The bottom 18" L 2U shelf is mounted on top of the drawer with the power supply and the 706 mounted to it.  The top shelf is a 10" L 1U and has a Uniden BCD536HP Digital Scanner in the middle.

Yesterday I got to use it for the first time out in the field. Our ham club was in charge of the commutations for the Big Bend Open Road Race. Everything ran off the battery and solar panel. Only used the UHF/VHF and a second UHF. Ran for 12 hours. My first equipment test went grate. There was only some small simple changes I plan to make like an AMP and volt meter to see how the charge is doing from the solar panel. The two guys there are my ham friends that are helping me.
