The challenge is to design and build an amateur radio related project into a box. Not just any box, rather a black plastic project box complete with facility to accommodate a 9 volt transistor type battery.The project boxes were available from The St George Amateur Radio Society store during our recent Xmas gathering. Your project does not have to be a transmitter or receiver, as long as it is directly related to amateur radio operation. Also your project does not have to use a 9 volt battery as the source of power.Show others your project in a box during our February 2018 gathering.
