Shielded rack mount case for 6-8 KiwiSDRs
Has anyone made a home brew rack mount case to hold 6-8 or more KiwiSDRs ? Local interference is a major consideration when setting up a multi-KiwiSDR station and something like a Faraday Cage for each KiwiSDR is probably worth the effort. I have seen comments saying that the KiwiSDR aluminium box is a useful addition to reduce the local interference but my experience has been that the internal temperature increase in the box is unacceptable. I figure that a home brew rack case with "blade" type slide in sub-assemblies with individual Faraday Cages might be a better fix. Add to that a good supply of clean and cool air from the back of the rack mount case and it might be a real winner. A large 6 inch fan or multiple 3.5 inch fans can certainly move some air to help prevent the KiwiSDR and RPi PCBs from cooking on a hot day. We get lots of hot days here in Australia so good cooling is essential.
Any ideas or suggestions ? Thanks, Jamie VK2YCJ
