Ultralight Radio DXing Kit - October 2020

Paul Blundell

With my focus on Ultralight radio DXing, my radio kit has changed, a couple of radios have been removed and I was finding my previous case was not working very well for me, the quality of the foam was not great.

I was out doing some shopping recently when I called passed my local Bunnings store, here I found this new case for $30, I decided to replace my previous case as I found it was not working as well as I would have liked. My plan being to use my previous case for my work tools and use this new case for my Ultralight radio DXing kit.

I started off at home by removing the foam from the base of the case and then sitting all my radios and other pieces of my DXing kit inside to see how they would all fit best.  
I ended up placing my 3" FSL at one end and using a piece of pine to divide this off, to the top of this I have attached a small piece of foam wrap, this goes over the top of my 3" FSL and provides some extra protection to this.
On the left hand side, I have both my TEAC PR130 and Digitech AR-1733 in cases, this allows them to be easily removed and carried by themselves if I need to. In here I also have my earphones, spare batteries, log sheets and notebook.

Overall, I am very pleased with how well this case has come out, I am able to carry and store multiple radios, log sheets, pens, notes, spare batteries and ear phones, everything I need for portable sessions. It is also small enough to fit in my backpack. For $30 it provides a great level of protection. 

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