Was just wondering what might be the best way to wire up, I've seen some of these ciggy lighters x2 with voltage display or do you guys know of anything else I could use that's neat basically to wire up the crt? would be nice if I can find a really neat flat SWR meter in there also maybe. I'm also going to put some sort of lever to hold the lid up with the rig facing you and also give some weather protection.

Cheers

Thanks Morris have had a look, I'm pretty much ready to drill the antenna hole now so I can connect it straight into the back of the box. While I was at it a did one for the PMR's and the network radio and the antenna equipment, all boxes have power banks  to recharge/run both 12v and 5v. Next a dipole for the PMR's on a 5m mast (shhh) Shocked
