Need field frequency box ideas
 
Would you kindly share any photos that you may have of your flying field frequency box. Our club is in the process of building a new one and we're looking for some fresh ideas. Thanks for posting any pics you may have.

well its not a great picture but this is what we have http://fr.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/clu...e2.jpg&.src=ph

the first three shelfs fit tx's nicly and the bottom 2 level fit the tx cases (some people keep there tx in a case when not in use) to the left you can just bairly make out the frequency chart.we use magnets with your name on it and simply put your magnet over that freqewncy and you can go fly.

The freg. chart is mounted on the door of a lil stoarage area .... il look for a better pic...

Thanks Freak. We don't really need an area for transmitters though. Just a box for everyday flying and frequency control.

Sorry the pictures are so poor. I took them with my phone when we had a bunch of fliers at the field and I wanted to document what frequencies were less popular.

Here is one we built from sheet metal. Our first one was just like it only wood and dowels. It lasted about 7 years in our bad weather. This one is sheltered and should last forever. If yours is out in the open think about the metal. The wood one cost about 15% of the metal one.

David thanks very much for the pics. It's nice to see what other club's are doing for frequency control.
