DXpedition Rig

Here are some pics of how I configured the rig for the DXpedition.  I was able to shoehorn everything into a Pelican 1520 case - KX3 , KXPA amplifier, PX3 panadapter, power supply and DC distribution.  The whole arrangement was shock mounted to a piece of polycarbonate.  I used the SOTABEAMS stands to get the viewing angle just right.

I can then take everything out to setup on a table or on the case itself as shown below.  I kept all the wires as short as possible.  The battery just connects to the blue Powergate.  The whole arrangement case included weighs 9.6 kilograms.
