I love my Yaesu FT-817, and I bring it with me every chance I have.
I was sick and tired of dragging my FT-817 around loose in my backpack, so I decided to find a permanent solution.
I used a watertight suitcase, and cut the foam so my FT-817 with accessories coult fit. It took me 20 minutes, and the result became pretty good.
Now it’s easy to go out and bring my FT-817. It’s packed and ready in a watertight and shockproof suitcase, so I can just grab it and go out.
I just have to remember to bring an antenna….
