Pop VU2POP has added a LiPo battery inside his µBITx case as illustrated above. He says “I installed a homebrew 3S2P li-ion battery pack into my ubitx cabinet. I had planned my cabinet for the right space & fit. Now I can carry my ubitx for outdoor action!”.
Pop VU2POP shared pictures of his homemade ubitx cabinets. The design involves a common cabinet for both the standard manufacturer supplied 2 line 1602 LCD display as well as the 2.8″ TFT Nextion display. Pop says “You need to change out the bezel.” This is a really good idea.
He supplies the complete cabinet, fixtures, microphone, microphone and PTT sockets, associated PCBs, and the speaker, fuse holder, fuse, heat sink insulation kit, heat sink compound, tags, screws, usb cable panel mount, knobs, folding feet, glue, and a USB to rear panel connector cable to fit on to Radiuno.
This is similar to his earlier cases, except this case will have common front panel bezels for 2.8 inch TFT & 2 line LCD. Just change out the bezels! Constructors can build the stock µbitx to get going and then upgrade to a 2.8″ TFT display at a later date when they have the basic rig working perfectly.
At present these cases are only available for VU amateur operators.
