The Chase Box – Version 4.2
This Was a Concept/Idea that Michael turned into a reality. The “Chase Box” is a box which houses all of the electronics needed (well most that is) for storage purposes and as a central hookup point while in the car, as you can see from the photos it keeps wires in the box and keeps things secured while in the car. The Right Area Houses a 12V Ever Start Deep Cycle Marine Battery for exclusively powering the HAM radio.
The chase box shown is the fourth version – Revision 2, which was designed with stronger components and handles
