Ultralight Radio DXing Go Case - January 2020


Paul Blundell
 

This is an update on my previous case which has now been improved.

I have recently been sent a baby 3" FSL aerial which I wanted to carry and protect, this was my main reason for changing how this case is setup. In the past I had the 3" baby FSL mounted to the bottom of the case, I have now mounted this to the aerial to the lid of the case and use it up side down.

This has the benefits of protecting the 3" FSL aerial from damage, keeping it off the ground and also allowing me to lean my radio against it, this provides a great level of coupling to the aerial and leaving my hands free for logging. I have also added a section for my clipboard and notes to be stored under the bottom of the lid.

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 radios, log sheets, pens, notes, spare batteries and ear phones, everything I need for portable sessions. It is also large 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.

Over the past few weeks I have been using this setup for a number of portable sessions, I am finding it works very well and being so compact I am taking it out with me more often than I have with other cases in the past.
