The first time i have seen a portable Shack was when i made the HAM Radio course in Klagenfurt in Carinthia.
It was in late 2014 i think on the KIDSDAY. A fellow ham operator who is also part of the A.R.E.N.A. group (Amateur Radio Emergency Network Austria) had his portable shack on display.
I am personally a great friend of Portable and nicely packed gear so i wanted to make my own some day. It took almost one and a half year to find the time and will to do so.
I have searched long for a suitable case for my gear. A normal suitcase has the broblem that is has just one lid. Good for transport, Bad for mounting and organizing.
I finally found something called “RACK CASE” wich is a Case Music Guys use to mount and transport their stuff.
You can take of the front and back lid very easily and fast and have a tube. In the front you can control your equipment and in the back you can put throu your cables and connectors.
I found that the company THOMANN has such Rack cases that are not that expencive and are quite good quality for the price.
The good thing is that the case already has mounting holes for the Plates that will be screwed in and in one lid the case has a nice net for putting cables and stuff in.
