Ultimate Portable Ultralight Radio DXing Go Case - September 2019

Paul Blundell

I have been looking for a way to carry my portable radio collection and my other ultralight related items. I have used a variety of bags and cases in the past.
Recently I was out doing some shopping when I called passed my local Super Cheap Auto. Here I found this case on special for $22, I decided to replace my previous case as I found it was not working as well as I would have liked and as it didn’t keep the radio the right way up it added the risk of the aerial breaking off. I have also recently been sent a baby 3" FSL aerial which I wanted to carry and protect.

Last night I had some spare time so I sat down and set up this case. I cut some small pieces of timber to hold the aerial in the right location and added some thin MDF to divide the aerial section off from the front part where I will be storing my radios.

Overall, I am very pleased with how well this case has come out, I am able to carry and store my baby 3" FSL plus two small radios plus log sheets, pens, notes, spare batteries and ear phones, everything I need for portable sessions. It is also small enough to fit in my back pack.

While this case was designed for ultralight DXing the same ideas could be used for amateur radio, radio scanning or any other storage need.
