Models of different panels

I would like to thank my friends in taking part in polls and expressing their opinion on the necessary controls on the Front Panel.

provide it as a blank front panel.

I could also provide complete blank panel for some interested persons.

The case is made of G.I. Sheet and the Front Panel and back panel are made of ACP, as it was easy to get it cut on a Router.

The front and back panels be used as per choice.
The case has provision of a Fan to keep the linear cool.An internal speaker facility
and a partition for shielding is provided.

In place of partition plate a Alimunium sheet could be used as a partition and the 30 watts linear mounted on it.
Please this is my first attempt in getting a case made and many of you may or may not
like my design.But it is an attempt from my side to provide a case for Bitx which I promised several times, the major factor being that the price being very economical for all to…

Hi Friends.
The cabinet is finally completed. But some how the design of front panel may not appeal to all , as I also felt this. But everyone has a different choice so may be some of you like the design.
I have got a new design with all the controls in one straight line, may be this is better for some of friends.
The Cabinet pictures will be put up shortly.
