DX Engineering HF/UHF/VHF Go Boxes

“With the ever-growing portable operation opportunities emerging, one of the common requests DX Engineering gets is for a ‘Go Box’ solution,” writes Troy, KE8DRR, OnAllBands blogger, portable ops activator, and DX Engineering customer/technical support specialist. “Operators are looking for an all-in-one solution that can be quickly deployed and easily set up. Enter the DX Engineering Go Box—a fully customizable, all-inclusive portable station in a rugged case.”

KE8DRR continues, “Our Go Boxes are designed with served agencies in mind. Having a Go Box in the EOC allows your radio room to stay on the air and deploy an Incident Comm Post. Your operators will be able to communicate locally on your repeaters while also having regional comms to other partners. The boxes are also perfect for Field Day, NVIS Day, and club outings. Imagine arriving at your event with a very compact station—everything pre-wired and ready to go. Simply apply power and attach the antenna of your choice.”
