uBitx - Home Brewed enclosure
From the first experience of making the case for Bitx40, I thought of having a simple tool for folding the aluminium sheet. Made one with Ply wood and hinges. See the picture below.
This tool did a decent job of folding sheet with less effort and fast. All we need is to fix the sheet well aligned and clamped tightly before folding. Here as well, used same 1.6mm Aluminium sheet.
I felt that the height of case can be reduced further as lots of space available. Soldered a separate connector below the PCB and also straightened the leads on Raduino board.
Replaced the BNC connector with SO-239 since all the antenna connectors in my shack are the same.
