I've found that perspex mobile phone display stands intended for retailers do a very good job for handheld scanners, and are available at low cost if you look around.

This one is 'currently unavailable' but illustrates the point:

4 or 6 self-adhesive silicon rubber bumpers will hold the phone in the stand, and stop it rocking.
Some non-slip tape will stop the stand sliding on your desk. It's sold by retailers for the disabled.
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

With handheld radios I always worry about the damage that having the radio upright can do to the connection between circuit board & antenna connection when using a coax feed. As it takes very little extra pressure over time to do a significant amount of damage to a antenna connection that is soldered directly to a circuit board, which most are with scanners.
I much prefer to lay my handies on their side when using a coax feed. It's another reason I like those micro mags with their awful & thin coax. As a Handheld appropriate external antenna, they do a good job & should cause no damage.
If anyone is unaware of this as an issue, then go onto a FT-817 users forum, where you find numerous warnings & stories about this issue in relation to the front BNC connector, which like most scanners has a antenna connector soldered directly onto the circuit board.
