New ULDXing Radio Case

A few weeks ago I starting looking for a carry case or bag to replace my well used waist pack which I had been using for storing and carrying my ultralight radios around, sadly this bag had gotten too small and I also managed to break the main zip on it.

To start with I was planning on purchasing a hard ABS type case, the problem with this was the cost (more then what my ultralight radios had cost) and the fact that it really stood out due to the size I required to fit all my gear including my loop aerial, sort of going against the minimal type nature of the ultralight radio hobby.

Next I started researching camera bags, these looked to be a good possibility and after checking some details regarding sizes and prices online I managed to track one down locally which was affordable and sounded like it would be perfect. When I went to check this out in person I found that the dimensions they had listed were wrong and it was going to be too small, to move up to the next size was quite a leap in price and it was starting to get too big to be manageable. With this I sort of gave up and was just going to carry them in my backpack.

On the weekend just been I had to make a quick trip to our local hardware store to buy some screws, while I was getting these I spotted something which I thought might be suitable, for AUS $20 I thought it was worth the chance.

Getting home and spending about 30 minutes placing some bubble wrap in the bottom and cutting some foam I had sitting at home I have managed to come up with a case which fits everything I need, looks good, is low profile and fits inside my normal backpack if I go for any long walks. Photos below:

New Radio Case

http://ulmwdx.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/n ... -case.html

Following on from my ultralight DXing session at Brady's Lookout yesterday where I found that my old radio carry case was not suitable (http://ulmwdx.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/o ... dxing.html) I have now purchased and set up a much better case to store and carry my ultralight radios in.

This fits my two ultralight radios with room for a third in the future. I also have room for spare batteries, earphones, a shortwave wire aerial, my log book, pens and a small torch.

The case is this one from Jaycar electronics: http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=HB6381

You are lucky my basic Raynet grab box is a large tool box & then I need a large laptop bag to, plus a caravan battery, earth stake, lump hammer, fiberglass mast & three biscuit tins with bits & pieces in like a gas soldering iron, screw drivers, claps etc etc...

I have now upgraded my radio case again:

EDIT: I have now changed over to a bag instead of a case:

Table Pro

Postby tanger32au » Wed Apr 09, 2014 2:12 am

I have just started using a little program called Table Pro for logging and storing my radio related information, might be worth checking out as a good step up from Excel.

If anybody is interested I am happy to assist with designing some tables to suit.
