UGGG One of my orders to this surplus
house was transit cases to carry my radio gear to Belize for the contest. I didn’t
read the ‘open’ – ‘close’ instructions, but got
it figgered out. The case worked SPLENDIDLY. The only thing was that it came
out with all sides ‘bellied in’ since it has a watertight seal! I

Specials - Kinda like this vendor - Have an ATX Supply on sale.
