Hi Bill and Pete,
It is almost year since you seeded idea about the BITX. I am still a listener of your podcast.
After finishing my RF amplifier project late last year, I was thinking of few projects and BITX was on the top of the list. I ordered and received a very beautiful BITX40 kit with Arduino, I got it recently. I also designed a simple case for it using CAD software. It can be used by anyone -- just go to your local laser/CNC shop to get it cut in Aluminum. I just thought of sharing the excitement with you. This rig and it sounds awesomely good :)
Attached are some snaps and design files (I am no expert in CAD etc. it is my first attempt to learn and build)
Happy projects and 73s
