I just bought some stuff to make my own. I can't really explain how but I have an idea in my head. Here is something else that might do the trick. http://www.assoc-elec-prod.com/wwfeatures.htm

Thanks for the pic, iwire.

I could not find a picture with RX but the basket I showed was for both.

I have seen home made versions, they used the ball bearing unit you would use under a kitchen cabinet "lazy Susan" like this


With a couple of circles of plywood, and a street safety cone in the middle to drop the RX over.
